The Clearwater Project uses modern technology to construct a new tunnel from the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in Carson to the existing ocean outfalls at Royal Palms Beach. Multimedia resources are provided to help you learn about the tunneling technology and the accompanying monitoring systems that will be used to ensure safe and controlled construction.
Rachel, our tunnel boring machine (TBM), was lowered in sections about 100 feet below ground using the access shaft in Carson. After being assembled and tested underground, she will start tunneling.
Take an up-close look at how Rachel, our tunnel boring machine (TBM), works. In this short video, we explain how the parts of the TBM work.
This 5-minute video provides an overview of the Clearwater Project including what the project is, why the project is needed, and how the project will be constructed.
Este video de 5 minutos proporciona una descripción general del Proyecto Clearwater, que incluye lo que es el proyecto, por qué se necesita el proyecto y cómo se construirá.
This video includes aerial footage of the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant (JWPCP) in the City of Carson, which currently processes approximately 260 million gallons of wastewater per day and is the Sanitation Districts' largest treatment plant. The footage also shows the location of the potential Regional Recycled Water Advanced Purification Center, which could become the nation's largest water purification facility.
The Sanitation Districts gave a virtual presentation to the public on October 30, 2021, on how we build modern tunnels. A construction update on the Clearwater Project is included.
The Sanitation Districts provided a virtual construction update on the Clearwater Project to the public on January 30, 2021.
The Sanitation Districts gave a virtual presentation on the Clearwater Project to the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council on October 13, 2020. This is a narrated version of the presentation given at that community meeting, which provides a brief overview of the project and the latest construction updates.
Since 2006, the Sanitation Districts have conducted over 500 outreach meetings to inform communities about the Clearwater Project. This presentation was given to the San Pedro community on September 19, 2017, as part of a workshop on the project.
The Sanitation Districts held a public workshop on Clearwater Project Construction on March 27, 2018, at the Wilmington Senior Center. This is a narrated version of the presentation given at that community meeting.
The School Outreach Program for the Clearwater Project will provide students the opportunity to learn about the science and technology of wastewater treatment, environmental stewardship through water recycling, and the engineering used to build critical infrastructure. We hope to inspire careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by offering in-classroom presentations, bus tours of our wastewater treatment plant in Carson (one of the largest in the country), and visits to a cutting-edge water purification facility.
This fact sheet highlights the Sanitation Districts' leadership in water recycling over the last 50 years. Information is presented on past achievements and future projects.
An overview of the Clearwater Project and a description of the upcoming construction are provided. Above-ground construction will be limited to the southwest end of our Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in Carson and at Royal Palms Beach in San Pedro.
Un resumen general de Proyecto Clearwater y una descripción de la construcción que viene son proporcionados. La construcción por encima del nivel del suelo se limitará al extremo suroeste de nuestra Planta de Control de Contaminación del Agua en Carson (en inglés "Joint Water Pollution Control Plant") y en Royal Palms Beach en San Pedro.
