Diablo Vista Pumping Plant Replacement Project - September 2015-September 2017

EBMUD's Diablo Vista Pumping Plant, located at 3305 Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette has reached the end of its useful life.  This critical facility serves the communities of Lafayette, Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek. EBMUD will construct a new pumping plant at the southwest corner of Mt. Diablo Blvd. and Mt. Diablo Court. To connect the new facility to the existing water distribution system, a 30-inch diameter water pipeline will be installed on the north side of Mt. Diablo Blvd. Once the new pumping plant has been constructed and tested, the existing pumping plant will be demolished and turned into a city/public parking lot.

Work on this project is expected to start in mid-September.  Typical work hours for this project are 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Monday through Friday.  Noise generating activities will not start before 8:00 AM.

Initially, EBMUD will clear the lot for the new pumping plant and replace the existing storm drain system located within the property. The bike lane and walkway on the south side of the street will be closed during construction. There will be parking impacts and lane closures along Mt Diablo Blvd. during certain construction activities.

If you have questions or would like to be added to our project email list please contact Michelle Blackwell in Community Affairs at (510) 287-2053 or mblackwe@ebmud.com.
