Bureau of Sanitation’s Recycled Water Programs

The Department of Water and Power’s current plans call for increasing recycled wastewater used to offset imports to 59,000 acre feet per year by 2025, and to 75,400 acre feet per year by 2040. But, if Los Angeles is to meet the Mayor’s goal of reducing reliance on imported water by 50% from 2014 levels by 2024, the City would have to reduce purchases from our major wholesale supplier, the MWD, from the 2014 level of 442,000 acre feet per year to 221,000 acre feet per year.
