Please join AWWEE's Los Angeles Regional Team for a tour of the West Basin MWD Little Treatment Plant.

West Basin's transformation from imported water wholesaler to a leader in conservation and water recycling can be traced back to California's severe drought period between the late '80s and early '90s. In 1992, West Basin received state and federal funding to design and build a world-class, state-of-the-art water recycling treatment facility in the City of El Segundo, with its own visitor’s education center.

The facility produces over 40 million gallons of water every day, conserving enough drinking water to meet the needs of 80,000 households for a year. West Basin’s Water Recycling Facility also houses a 60,000 square foot solar power generating system that has reduced emissions of carbon dioxide by over 356 tons in one year’s time. These emissions reductions are equivalent to planting nearly 100 acres of trees or not driving 890,007 miles. To date, $600 million dollars in local, state, and federal funds have been invested in this effort.

Lunch will be provided.
