Pasadena’s new recycled water system is back on track with construction slated for early 2015.
When completed, the system will pipe in carefully treated recycled water from the Los Angeles/Glendale Water Reclamation Plant to irrigate public parks, golf courses, freeways, schools and street medians. The system could eventually save nearly a billion gallons of drinking water every year and is a key part of the City’s long-range water supply plan!
Phase 1 will irrigate Brookside Park, Brookside Golf Course, the Rose Bowl and Art Center College of Design and should be ready in 2014. Phase 1 will also capture mountain storm water runoff that now flows out to sea.
