MWD-LACSD Regional Recycled Water Program

Paul Brown is providing program management services for a new water purification project to reuse water currently discharged to the Pacific Ocean for recharge of regional groundwater basins. Through a partnership with the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County (LACSD), the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) would build a new purification plant and distribution lines to groundwater basins in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Currently in the feasibility analysis phase, the program would represent the first in-region production of water by MWD.  Diversifying the region’s water supply sources, advancing conservation and maintaining imported supplies are all part of MWD’s long-term Integrated Water Resources Plan.
