The Town of Discovery Bay operates two wastewater treatment plants. Both plants are located on the east end of town.
The two plants provide state of the art wastewater treatment facilities in compliance with permits issued to the Town by the state of California for the treatment and discharge of wastewater.
Both plants have recently undergone a major capital investment program to ensure that the processes will continue to serve the community for years to come.
In 2014 the state of California required that the Town’s wastewater be treated to Title 22 waste discharge requirements. This requirement will result in an additional capital investment by the Town to construct these necessary facilities. When completed in 2017, the Town will have “purple pipe” capabilities, or treated wastewater water that can be used for irrigation purposes.
While extremely rare, if you suspect that there is a Sanitary Sewer Overflow, or SSO, in your neighborhood, please contact us immediately. We do not want raw waste to enter into the storm drain system, polluting Delta waterways. Most likely water will be seeping from a sewer manhole cover in the street.
If you need to call after hours to report a SSO or another problem, please contact our preferred vendor Veolia Water at (925) 634-8818 immediately. They are on call 24/7. The Town can be reached during daytime hours at (925) 634-1131.
