PROJECT LOCATION AND Description

The Emeryville-Albany Pipeline is the next phase of the East Bayshore Recycled Water Project, part of EBMUD’s comprehensive Integrated Recycled Water Program (IRWP). The Emeryville-Albany Pipeline project will design and construct 4 miles of recycled water pipeline to connect the Cities of Emeryville, Berkeley, and Albany and provide recycled water for irrigation and industrial uses in the public and private sector (such as green space, median irrigation and cooling tower water). This project will increase recycled water use by about 370,000 gallons per day and is part of the ongoing multi-phased East Bayshore project.

The IRWP will expand recycled water use in EBMUD’s service area through multiple interrelated water recycling projects that are intended to increase climate and drought resiliency, drinking water reliability, emergency preparedness, and environmental protections.

The location of the project is Alameda, Emeryville, Berkeley, and Albany, CA.
