Water Reclamation Plant

About our plant


The Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant combines advanced wastewater treatment technology with the beauty and tranquility of its landscaped gardens. The Japanese gardens are irrigated with reclaimed water from the plant and are open to the public on a year round basis.

The plant provides reclaimed water to many users in the San Fernando Valley and the Department of Public Works is collaborating with other City departments to expand this program.

History


The Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant began continuous operation in 1985. Its facilities were designed to treat 40 million gallons of wastewater per day and serve the area between Chatsworth and Van Nuys in western portion of the San Fernando Valley. The plant was named after Mr. Tillman, who was the City Engineer from 1972 to 1980.

A major construction project that doubled the capacity of DCT was completed in 1991 – expanding the plant from 40 MGD to 80 MGD.

The Tillman Plant, together with the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant are the leading producers of reclaimed water in the San Fernando Valley. The plant is able to provide critical hydraulic relief to the City’s major sewers downstream, which badly need the additional capacity to serve other portions of the city south of the Valley.
