Currently, recycled water is pumped to the Doolan Tank where it is stored for irrigation, fire protection, and fire suppression uses. The Livermore Water Reclamation Plant can produce up to 6.0 million gallons per day (MGD) of recycled water. In 2015, 420 million gallons were used onsite at the water reclamation plant for irrigation and industrial uses. A total of 340 million gallons were used for offsite irrigation.
On Monday, June 26, 2017, the Livermore City Council adopted a Resolution adjusting Water Rates and Meter Service Charges during its regularly scheduled meeting which includes Recycled Water Rates. Based on the 2017 Comprehensive Water and Wastewater Cost of Service Study, recycled water customers are now a class within the water enterprise. As such, recycled water customers will be charged the same Monthly Service Charge as potable water customers and a separate uniform usage rate of $2.97 per 100 cubic feet effective July 1, 2019.
