Public Invited to Learn About the City's Recycled Water Program at Community Event
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and the Department of Public Works Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) are expanding the Recycled Water Program to reduce the City's dependence on imported water by providing more reliable, locally supplied water.
LADWP invites the public to hear an overview of this Recycled Water Program at an open community forum that will outline the City's long-term strategies to expand local water supplies through increased use of recycled water. The Program includes expanding infrastructure for irrigation and industrial uses along with groundwater replenishment using highly purified water.
This is a great opportunity for your family and your friends to join citizens from 90 countries to honor Oceans Day and the international effort of Coastal Cleanup Day. With over 60 locations, it's easy to find a site near you.
