Construction Contract Awarded
In January 2019, the Sanitation Districts awarded a construction contract for the Clearwater Project to Dragados USA, Inc. Dragados brings extensive tunneling expertise, completing more than 530 underground projects in 20 countries and totaling over 800 miles of tunnel. Construction of the project will begin this year and is scheduled to end in 2026.
Tour of Joint Water Pollution Control Plant
Please join us on Saturday, May 18 at 9:30 a.m. for a tour of our largest wastewater treatment plant, the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant (JWPCP) in Carson. Come learn about this plant, which is the hub of a regional sewer system that serves over 5 million people in Los Angeles County. On the tour, we will visit the Bixby Marshland (a 17-acre restored marsh located adjacent to the plant) and see an exciting demonstration-scale water purification facility that could lead to the largest water recycling project in the country. Please RSVP to Genesis Rodriguez at (562) 908-4288, ext. 2310, or by Wednesday, May 15.
The Next Step in Water Recycling
For more than 50 years, the Sanitation Districts have been a national leader in providing recycled water — supplying our region with more than 1 trillion gallons of recycled water since 1962. This year, a demonstration-scale facility (500,000 gallons per day) called the Regional Recycled Water Advanced Purification Center (APC) will be placed into service at the JWPCP. The APC will purify the JWPCP’s treated water and is the result of a partnership with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD). The APC is needed to generate information for design and permitting of a potential full-scale facility. If implemented, the full-scale facility could purify up to 150 million gallons per day of water for replenishing local groundwater aquifers (enough for 335,000 homes).

This potential Regional Recycled Water Program and the Clearwater Project would complement each other. The Clearwater Project will provide a reliable discharge option for byproducts from the water purification process and will make the potential full-scale water purification facility less complicated, more flexible and less costly.
