This article is about the Livermore/Dublin Settlement; a separate settlement process was conducted in Contra Costa County[1].

The Issue

Zone 7 water services agency entered into an agreement with a developer in Contra Costa County to use its infrastructure for the transportation of water to the development. CBG believed this was not legal and filed a lawsuit which was joined by the City of Livermore.


The lawsuit was settled out of court with multiple remedies. The developer paid into a mitigation fund which is used to purchase open space land. It also includes protections from future abuses, such as prohibiting Dublin from urbanizing Doolan Canyon.
