The City will provide updates on the events and activities related to the TIRE project. Check back periodically to find out the project status and view photos.
The TIRE Project was first presented to TIWRP and LA Sanitation (LASAN) back in 2003 as an experimental project with the goal of beneficially reusing biosolids. Terminal Island was selected due to its location in an industrial area—the Los Angeles Harbor—and its ideal geology for deep-well injection. Three years later, the EPA granted TIRE a five-year Underground Injection Control Program Permit. The project began construction in 2007, with the first two wells operating in mid-2008.
The following table describes the major milestones in the TIRE Project thus far since 2006:
