Guided Tour of the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant
The Hyperion Water Treatment Plant (HWRP), LA Sanitation and Environment’s flagship reclamation facility (and sometime backdrop to Hollywood blockbusters), is the largest reclamation plant west of the Mississippi and one of the biggest in the world.
The journey can be divided into five major areas:
1) Liquids: the separation of sludge from the wastewater
2) Solids: the management of the sludge after it has been removed from the wastewater
3) Monitoring: wastewater treatment process, air quality and the receiving water of Santa Monica Bay
4) Renewable Energy Facility: generating about 80% of Hyperion’s power needs (18.5 MW)
5) Water Recycling: 70 million gallons per day (MGD) are currently recycled – 35 MGD of effluent is distributed to West Basin and LADWP for beneficial reuse, and 35 MGD of filtered secondary effluent is distributed internally for equipment cooling and washing to offset potable water use. Hyperion will be increasing recycled water to 108 MGD by 2026.
