WaterTalks is pleased to offer participants 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 the 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. At full-scale, Pure Water Southern California would provide a new climate-resilient source of water for Southern California, up to 150 million gallons of water daily when completed and provide enough water for up to 1.5 million people.
Join this tour to learn how this plant is transforming water reuse and securing Southern California’s water future. The tour will run about 90 minutes, this includes a brief presentation, the tour, and plenty of time for Q&A. Driving directions will be provided closer to tour date.
Attendance will be capped at 25 people, lunch will be included.
