Water Reclamation Plant

About our plant


The Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant is strategically located to serve east San Fernando Valley communities that are both within and outside of the Los Angeles City limits. The plant’s highly treated wastewater meets or exceeds the water quality standards for reclaimed water for irrigation and industrial processes. This water reuse conserves over one billion gallons of potable water per year. The plant is highly automated and staff can control processes from the onsite control room or at remote locations.

History


In 1976, the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant started operations as the first water reclamation plant in the city. The cities of Los Angeles and Glendale co-own the plant, and the the City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Sanitation operates and maintains it. Each city pays 50% of the costs and receives an equal share of the recycled water. The plant processes around 20 million gallons of wastewater per day.

In addition to its role as a leading producer of reclaimed water, the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant is another regionally strategic facility within the City’s overall wastewater system. By processing flows in the eastern San Fernando Valley, the plant is able to provide critical hydraulic relief to the City’s major sewers downstream, which badly need the additional capacity to serve other portions of the City south of the Valley.
