PROJECT ADDRESSThe Pasadena Non-Potable Water Project is located within the San Gabriel Valley, approximately 10 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles in Los Angeles County, California. The Study Area includes portions of PWP’s service area and areas outside of PWP’s service area within unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, La Cañada Flintridge, San Marino, and Glendale.
The purpose of the Pasadena Non-Potable Water Project is to meet a portion of PWP’s non-potable water needs using local water sources. The proposed Project involves construction and operation of a new non-potable water distribution system to deliver water from three local supply sources: (1) recycled water produced by the Los Angeles/Glendale Water Reclamation Plant (“LAG”), (2) surface water inflows from two existing tunnels (Devils Gate and Richardson Springs), and (3) water from the Arroyo Seco stream, to customers within the service areas of PWP, Lincoln Avenue Water Company, Foothill Municipal Water District, and California American Water Company, for landscape irrigation, industrial cooling, and other non-potable uses. The three water supplies included in the proposed Project (recycled water, tunnel water, and raw surface water) are collectively referred to as “non-potable water supplies”.
