consideration on second connection to MWD Water Resources Plan prioritized developing “local” reliability related to future probabilities of imported water draught storages and emergency outages: 1. Groundwater 3. Conservation 2. Recycled Water 4. Interties 9/4/2013 4

Recycled Water Feasibility Study Conclusions

   Evaluated 17 alternatives and recommended 3 projects in: Verdugo Basin with CVWD and Glendale; Monk Hill in Devil’s Gate and Eaton Wash Areas Recycled water production: 48 AFY to 560 AFY Proposed Pilot Demonstration Project (280 AFY)  October 2012: Project costs decreased from: $3,759,072 to $2,935,300  Submitted for IRWM Funding Grant, USBR Funding and MWD for Foundational Action Funding 9/4/2013 5

Recycled Water Demonstration Project Benefits

Could Increase yield of recycled water in the future Enhance local supply and reduce dependency on imported water Reduction in greenhouse gases and energy usage BMP for Municipal Separate Stormwater Sewer Systems (MS4) Permit Incorporate a

Watershed Approach

to include education benefits: Public and LCUSD Outreach with Cal Poly Pomona (Fields of Green) Partnership 9/4/2013 16
