Real life uses for Ironhouse's recycled water from users
When Ironhouse's Recycled Water Fill Station opened for the summer season, Oakley's Sammie G. was one of the first customers in line to fill his 300-gallon tank with free recycled water to bring home to his backyard garden. Sammie and his wife have been using Ironhouse's recycled water since the Fill Station opened in 2015.
"This water is really good for my garden," Sammie said. "I use it on my trees and plants in the backyard."
The couple comes to the Fill Station two or three times a day, twice a week. While they are filling up their tank they spend time catching up with other users, trading garden stories or talking about the weather. Sammie's wife enjoys walking around the District's grounds for a little exercise and watching the birds and seeing the occasional jack rabbit or coyote while she's waiting for their tank to fill.
The Ironhouse Recycled Water Fill Station is located at 450 Walnut Meadows Drive in Oakley and is open Monday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Fill Station will be open until the end of September. New users are welcome. The recycled water is free to Oakley and Bethel Island residents and available for outside residents for a nominal fee.
