The AWPF at TIWRP is undergoing a major expansion project. The AWPF Ultimate Expansion will double the plant’s production from six million gallons per day to 12 million gallons per day by the end of 2016. By enlarging and improving processes like Microfiltration and Reverse Osmosis, the plant can better serve the Los Angeles area and lessen the reliance on imported potable water.
The AWPF Ultimate Expansion project includes the construction of a feedwater equalization tank, additional microfiltration (MF) and reverse osmosis (RO) systems, and an advanced oxidation process (AOP). After the scheduled completion of the AWPF Expansion Project in December 2016, 100% of plant flow will receive advanced treatment to produce 12 MGD, or 13,440 Acre-foot per Year (AFY).
Doubling the plant’s current out-put will allow the plant to do the following:
This recycled water decreases the demand for potable water that is imported by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). The AWPF expansion project is in partnership with LA Sanitation (LASAN), LADWP, LA County Sanitation District, and the Water Replenishment District.
