Learn how West Basin is exploring responsible ocean water desalination to diversify the district's water supply portfolio, increase water reliability and protect our marine ecosystem! The briefing includes a tour of our Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility, which showcases the same water purification technologies that turn sea water into drinking water.
Please note it is mandatory for all guests to be at least 7 years of age or older, and all tour participants must wear flat, closed-toe shoes for safety purposes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Reservations required.

The State of California, through the California Water Management Planning Act of 1983, as amended, requires every urban water supplier to develop an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years to demonstrate in detail how their agency manages their water supplies and demands under all hydrology conditions. West Basin's draft 2015 UWMP is available for review. The Public Hearing to consider comments is scheduled for Monday, June 27, 2016 @ 1 p.m. at West Basin's headquarters. Subsequent to the Public Hearing, the West Basin Board of Directors will consider adoption of the UWMP.
This plan demonstrates not only how West Basin plans to meet its service area's retail demands over the next 25 years, but also how they plan to provide long-term water reliability through supply diversification. Since West Basin's formation in 1947, West Basin has strived to ensure water reliability. Through its efforts in recycled water, conservation, education, groundwater recovery and ocean water desalination research, West Basin continues to be a leader in water reliability by investing in a well-balanced water supply portfolio.
