The Contra Costa Water District’s public outreach tours are coming up on Wednesday Sept. 25th and Friday, Oct. 4th, and they’re completely FREE!

These are fun and interesting tours that last from 8am to about 3pm, and they include a stop at the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant in Oakley, the Old River Pumping Station near Discovery Bay, and Los Vaqueros Marina and the top of the dam. If the weather is nice, you’ll go out on a boat on the newly-expanded reservoir (which is now storing more than 128,000 acre-feet of water, the most ever impounded at Los Vaqueros). Lunch is also included.

These free tours give District residents an opportunity to see how your water is delivered and ask questions to District employees.

The tours are open to adult District residents only (over 18).

To RSVP, contact Jim Freschi at 925-688-8175 or send an email to Space is limited, so don’t hesitate if you plan to go.

We went on the Tour twice with the MDUSD. It is interesting to see all the different stages the water goes thru, before it hit’s your home.
If you walk out towards the Delta inlet water, there are huge holding tanks for the water, pretty intense!

I took a private tour a water treatment plant. I had an idea of what happens ( a friend works there) but I was still amazed at everything that has to be done to treat water( sewer and drinking water). I will never complain about my water bill again.
