Summer 2017 Project on Village Parkway
DSRSD is rehabilitating a major sewer pipeline that runs under Village Parkway in Dublin all the way to the wastewater treatment plant in Pleasanton. Work in Dublin is from mid-June through August and in Pleasanton from August through October.
In residential areas, the contractor will work in the daytime to minimize nighttime noise. In commercial areas, the contractor will work a 24/7 schedule to finish the project as quickly as possible. Work that blocks driveways and major intersections will be done at night to minimize traffic congestion.
Sewer Rehab Presentation Available
This summer, DSRSD will rehabilitate a major sewer pipeline to extend its life by 50 years.On March 15, we hosted an informational meeting for property owners in the construction zone, which includes sections of Village Parkway in downtown Dublin and Commerce Circle in Pleasanton. The presentation shown at the meeting is available online.
The District's request for construction bids will be posted on eBidBoard within a few days.

Sound Planning to Manage Aging Infrastructure
Installed in 1960, the Dublin trunk sewer is nearing the end of its useful life. DSRSD did acoustic and video studies in 2014 to assess the pipe's condition and then hired an engineering firm to design a cost-effective rehabilitation project that would minimize impacts on businesses and residents.
DSRSD proactively manages vital community infrastructure to maintain essential services, avoid costly emergency repairs, and protect public health and the environment. The expected cost of the project is $6.7 million. DSRSD invests a portion of sewer charges over time to pay for projects like these.
|Sulfides in wastewater have caused significant corrosion (dark yellow patches) to the interior of the Dublin trunk sewer, exposing reinforcing steel in some locations. DSRSD is rehabilitating the 57-year-old pipe in the summer of 2017.
