Water conservation is a critical issue currently, and the City is playing its part in minimizing its impact on water supplies. Beginning this year, the Maintenance Division has implemented a program which uses only reclaimed (recycled) water from the Contra Costa Sanitary District to irrigate all of the landscaped medians and other public areas throughout the city.
The City Hall pond, lawn and landscaping are all irrigated using ground water pumped from a well below the City Council chambers. The City only uses potable (drinking) water within City Hall offices, the Police Department and the Public Services Center building.
The Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District continues to find ways to balance water conservation and reduce consumption with the goal of providing you the finest parks and recreation programs possible.
The District’s major facilities - Pleasant Hill Park, Pleasant Oaks Park, Chilpancingo Park, College Park High fields, Valley View Middle School, Senior Center and the Community Center - utilize reclaimed water which keeps the fields green and in playable condition, and preserves the landscaping. In some parks however, the District will drastically reduce irrigation in an effort to preserve this precious resource. This means that these parks may look a little different. Your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated.
