California Water Service Begins Providing Recycled Water to Dominguez Technology Center
TORRANCE, Calif. — As part of its commitment to being a responsible environmental steward, California Water Service (Cal Water) has begun providing recycled water to the Dominguez Technology Center (DTC) in Carson, Calif. The recycled water is being supplied pursuant to a new agreement with Cal Water's wholesale supplier, West Basin Municipal Water District.
Under the agreement, Cal Water estimates that the DTC will use about 135 acre-feet, or almost 44 million gallons, of recycled water per year, freeing up precious potable water supplies, according to Cal Water District Manager Dan Armendariz. DTC is a 438-acre, 20-building business, industry, technology, and office space by Watson Land Company near the Alameda Corridor. All recycled water operations will be regulated by the independent state agency that oversees Cal Water's water utility operations.
"In the same way we're committed to our customers and communities, we're also committed to protecting the environment," Armendariz said. "This includes operating with long-term sustainability in mind and utilizing alternative sources of supply when possible. We're pleased to be partnering with the Dominguez Technology Center and West Basin on this endeavor."
Cal Water serves approximately 313,400 people through 87,900 service connections in its system and another 44,600 people through an operations and maintenance contract with the City of Hawthorne. Company-wide, Cal Water serves about 2 million people through 486,900 service connections in California. The utility has provided water service in the area since 1927.
