Central Basin’s newest recycled water connection is at Smith Park in Pico Rivera. Use of recycled water for irrigation, commercial and industrial purposes is 100% water conserved!
Sources of drinking water are becoming increasingly limited and recycled water is an ideal alternative that is necessary to sustain a reliable supply of water for our region. Recycled water is also less expensive compared to drinking water which can be a financial incentive. One of the many benefits of using recycled water for irrigation is that it reduces the need for chemical fertilizers. The Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County highlights the top 10 benefits of water recycling.
Central Basin continues to work collectively with its customer base throughout 24 cities of southeast Los Angeles County, in an effort to expand the use of recycled water for irrigation, golf courses, street medians and parks. Some innovative options for use of recycled water includes textiles, paper production, dye houses, co-generation plants and printing facilities.
