The water replenishment district of Southern California and the City of Torrance has reopened its facility after two years of construction.
The $22.5 million project will take 5 million gallons of salty ground water each day and pump out drinkable and usable water for everyone in the South Bay! The water treatment facility uses a method called reverse osmosis to clean the ground water. The ground brackish water is collected and pumped into many pipes under high pressure then goes through a series of filters to purify the water.
Due to the success of the project, the water replenishment district plans to continue to expand as they build more water treatment facilities in the future.
