Water resilience in Los Angeles

Center for Business Advocacy

October 3, 2019

During Thursday’s Energy, Water & Environmental Sustainability Council, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Met), the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP), and Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment (LASAN) all discussed their investments in recycled water. Met is implementing its Regional Recycled Water Program (RRWP), beginning with a demonstration treatment plant. LADWP and LASAN are collaborating on retooling the Hyperion water treatment plant, an approximately $8 billion investment, to increase recycled water, which could supply 33 percent of the city’s potable water. Both efforts will help increase local water supply and resiliency as our region continues to grapple with the impacts of a changing climate. SEE THE PHOTOS.
