Water Reclamation Plant
Welcome to our virtual tour of the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant. If you would like to arrange an in-person tour, please call (213)972-1305.
Sewage contains mostly water and solids. As you go through the tour, notice that many of the treatment processes at the plant are designed to separate solids from water. This must take place so that when the wastewater is completely treated it is clean enough to be pumped into the Los Angeles River or reclaimed for other uses. The solids have value too - they are sent back into the sewer system and flow to the Hyperion Treatment Plant where they are processed into energy resources, soil amendments, and fertilizer.
