West Basin Municipal Water District is a global leader in the water industry in water recycling, conservation, water resource management, youth and adult education, and ocean-water desalination. West Basin provides drinking water and recycled water to eight local retail water agencies including four cities, three private water companies and one county water agency. The District serves a population of nearly one million residents in 17 cities and unincorporated areas along the coastal corridor from Palos Verdes to Malibu. The District is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors and is a member agency of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
West Basin operates the state-of-the-art Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility and three satellite locations. It is the largest treatment and water purification facility of its type in the world providing nearly 40 million gallons of water each day to over 300 sites. West Basin utilizes various advanced treatment processes to produce five types of high-quality “designer” waters used for commercial, industrial and landscape purposes, including three ultra-pure waters. The District is also researching environmentally-responsible ocean-water desalination and currently hosts tours at its Water Education Center in Redondo Beach, California and also at the Edward C. Little Recycling Facility.
West Basin owns and operates approximately 100 miles of recycled water pipeline, and supplies recycled water to customers for non-potable use. To expand the use of recycled water, the District assists customers with the process of converting their sites to utilize recycled water. In addition, the District conducts site inspections to ensure compliance for the safe use of recycled water.
