Water District Reaches Milestone

wrecycleDrought-stricken California is also the home of a wastewater recycling plant that reached a significant milestone.

The West Basin Municipal Water District passed 150 billion gallons of total recycled water production at its Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility in El Segundo. The district said that amount of water would serve approximately 3.7 million people for a year.

West Basin began recycling water following the droughts of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five types of water produced are for irrigation, cooling towers, low-pressure boiler feed water, high-pressure boiler feed water and indirect drinking water.

Customers of West Basin’s recycled water include Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Tesoro refineries, Goodyear Airship Station, StubHub Center, Toyota and Honda corporate headquarters, city parks, golf courses, and large landscapes. Approximately 50 percent of the City of El Segundo’s water use is recycled water.

The recycling facility was recently expanded and increased its operational capacity from 30 to approximately 45 million gallons of recycled water per day.
