Transforming Recycled Water into Drinking Water - November 1, 2018


Rendering of the pilot advanced water treatment process for the PureThe Joint Powers Authority comprised of Las Virgenes Municipal Water District and Triunfo Sanitation District took another step forward in its quest to bring water full circle by approving plans for the Pure Water Demonstration Facility. This pilot plant is the precursor for a $100 million water purification plant that will be completed by 2030 and provide 1.6 billion gallons per year of locally-sourced drinking water. The source water for the pilot and full-scale plants will be from highly treated recycled water currently used for irrigation or discharged into Malibu Creek. The pilot plant, scheduled for completion in late 2019, will evaluate advanced purification technologies including reverse osmosis and ultraviolet disinfection, ensuring that the water meets all drinking-water standards. The facility will be located at the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District Headquarters in Calabasas and will provide the means for designers to test various purification systems, operators to undergo training and the public to view the process in action.
