Testing Begins at Advanced Purification Center

The Regional Recycled Water Advanced Purification Center in Carson began baseline testing of its innovative purification process this week. During this testing period, scientists and engineers will monitor the purification process for hundreds of water quality parameters to determine if the purified water meets requirements for groundwater replenishment and reuse. Data collected will be used to gain regulatory acceptance of the process as well as obtain information for the design of a full-scale facility. View a copy of the test plan and additional information.
