Los Angeles Water Recycling Project Partnership Extended

March 27, 2015
The partnership to operate the 70-mile distribution system and deliver 5,000 acre-ft of recycled water annually will continue through 2017

Park Water Co. has been awarded a two-year extension to its current contract to operate and maintain Central Basin Municipal Water District’s E. Thornton Ibbetson Century Water Recycling Project in Los Angeles County. The total value of the contract award is more than $500,000. With this contract extension, Park Water’s partnership with Central Basin to operate its 70-mile distribution system and deliver 5,000 acre-ft of recycled water annually will continue through 2017.

“Recycled water plays a pivotal role in augmenting imported water supplies in the Southeast Los Angeles County,” said Central Basin Board President Robert Apodaca. “The partnership between Central Basin and Park Water is demonstration of agencies working together to address the drought and provide alternative, reliable sources of water and will better position Central Basin to assess potential options for rebalancing and optimizing the water recycling project and resulting benefits.”

Park Water has operated Central Basin’s Century Water Recycling System since its start-up in 1992 and the Esteban Torres Rio Hondo Water Recycling System since 2014. The contract extension for the Century Project will result in greater operational effectiveness and synergies between the two recycled water systems and will support Central Basin’s efforts to streamline the establishment of an asset management program for its water recycling project.

“We are looking forward to enhancing our partnership with Central Basin to provide a drought-proof supply of recycled water to many communities and businesses,” said Jeanne-Marie Bruno, Park Water’s general manager and senior vice president
