To protect public health and the environment through innovative and cost effective wastewater and solid waste management, and in doing so convert waste into resources such as recycled water, energy, and recycled materials.
In order to comply with a Federal and State mandate for the amount of chloride (salt) in our recycled water discharged from the Valencia and Saugus Water Reclamation Plants to the Santa Clara River, the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District has approved and will be constructing compliance facilities. This project will consist of microfiltration, reverse osmosis, UV disinfection, and brine disposal via deep well injection.
The Joint Outfall Districts have embarked on a major, long-term project to provide additional effluent disposal redundancy and capacity for the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant (JWPCP) in Carson. The facility plan and associated environmental impact report for this project (known as the Clearwater Program) was approved in November 2012. The approved project is the construction of an additional tunnel for JWPCP effluent, which will enhance reliability of the overall plant operation and accommodate approved future growth in the areas tributary to JWPCP.
