Agencies to break ground on demonstration facility that could lead to one of the largest water purification plants in the world

September 18, 2017

The Sanitation Districts’ Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in Carson currently treats and cleans wastewater from homes and businesses. Under the Regional Recycled Water Program, Metropolitan would purify the treated wastewater through various advanced processes to produce a safe, high-quality water source to replenish groundwater basins in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
The program will begin with a 500,000-gallon-per-day demonstration facility that will generate information needed for the potential future construction of a full-scale recycled water plant.
