La Cañada Water Reclamation Plant

The La Cañada Water Reclamation Plant (WRP) is located at 533 Meadowview Drive in the city of La Cañada Flintridge. The plant occupies approximately one-third of an acre on the grounds of the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. The plant began operation on October 5, 1962, with a capacity of 0.1 million gallons per day. 


The La Cañada WRP provides extended aeration secondary treatment for 200,000 gallons of wastewater per day (see flow diagram below). The plant serves the Country Club and 425 surrounding homes. All of the disinfected, secondary effluent is put into the four lakes on the 105-acre Country Club golf course. Lake water (augmented by potable water during the summer) is used for landscape irrigation of the golf course.
