The American Water Summit is pleased to offer delegates the opportunity to visit the Pure Water Southern California Demonstration Plant, a state-of-the-art facility that could lead to one of the largest water reuse programs in the world.
Water is too precious to use just once. So, The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, in partnership with Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts, is making a major investment in a water recycling program that would reuse water currently sent to the ocean. Pure Water Southern California would take treated wastewater and further purify it to produce a new, sustainable source of high-quality water for Southern California.
The Pure Water Southern California Demonstration Plant uses a three-step purification process. Cutting-edge research and innovation are an integral part of the demonstration plant. It is generating information that can be used for a full-scale advanced water purification facility in the future. One of the main purposes for the plant is to facilitate regulatory approval of the innovative purification technology being used.
At full-scale, Pure Water Southern California would provide a new drought-resilient source of water for Southern California, up to 150 million gallons of water daily when completed and provide purified water for up to 15 million people.
Join this tour to learn how this plant is transforming water reuse and securing Southern California’s water future. This opportunity is available for registered delegates, and there are limited spaces to attend.
