Work Begins on $500M Advanced Water Treatment Facility for Los Angeles

Design is underway on the $500-million Donald C. Tillman Advanced Water Purification Facility, one of the largest potable reuse projects in the country.

Led by LA Sanitation and Environment (LASAN) and the Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power (LADWP), the facility will be constructed via progressive design-build, with Jacobs serving as the lead contractor.

Long Beach Injection Well Designed to Increase Groundwater Supply

Construction recently began on a well designed to inject water back into the groundwater basin beneath Long Beach.

The groundbreaking last week took place at the Water Replenishment District’s advanced water treatment facility, on the southeastern border of Long Beach, next to the San Gabriel River. The plant further treats sewer effluent from the Los Angeles County Sanitation District to create purified recycled water.
