MALIBU—The city of Malibu recently unveiled to the public new photos of its Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility. On Wednesday, October 26, Malibu published new pictures of the project which began construction in July 2016.

According to the city’s Facebook page, “Trenching, boring and tunneling work is under way for the pipeline portion of the project. The pipeline network will bring wastewater from all of the properties in the Civic Center area to the wastewater treatment facility, and bring the clean Title 22 treated recycled water to Bluffs and Legacy Park, and eventually to homes and businesses to used for landscape irrigation.”

An official overview of the Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility includes “[the] development of a centralized wastewater treatment facility in the Malibu Civic Center area that will treat, reuse, and/or dispose of wastewater flows from properties in the Civic Center. The Project is in response to regulatory actions taken by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and the State Water Resources Control Board to prohibit discharges from onsite wastewater discharge systems (OWDS) in the Civic Center area, and to ban new OWDS, based on a phased schedule.”

The latest pictures released show the project during the months of August and September. This is the largest infrastructure project in the history of Malibu.
