The Ironhouse Sanitary District has released a video of how residents of the City of Oakley and Bethel Island can utilize the Recycled Water Fill Station.
The station is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Recycled water can be used for the irrigation of lawns, plants, trees, and vegetable gardens.
This service is available to customers who live within the District’s service area of Oakley and Bethel Island. Those who do not live within the service area can sign-up for the service for a nominal fee of $1 per fill-up of up to 300 gallons at one time. All customers need to bring their containers, up to 300 gallons, to collect their recycled water to take home and can make as many visits back per day, during open hours, as they wish.
New customers are welcome. Applications are available on the District’s website at www.
Ironhouse first opened its Residential Recycled Water Fill Station in June 2015 when more than 800 people signed up to use the fill station during the first summer season. Although there has been a slow down over the past couple of years there are still a core group of dedicated users who return regularly for water to irrigate lawns, trees, and gardens.
Recycled water can also be used to wash cars and clean off driveways and decks. Ironhouse’s recycled water is not to be used for drinking, cooking, bathing, or swimming pools.
