Recycled water is former wastewater that has been filtered and disinfected. The cities of Los Angeles and Glendale already use it to irrigate Griffith Park, the landscaping along freeways, local cemeteries and golf courses, as well as for cooling at a Glendale power plant. Reclaiming wastewater for these purposes frees up precious fresh water resources.
According to an existing agreement between the cities of Pasadena and Glendale, Pasadena will receive up to 6,000 acre-feet of recycled water annually from the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation plant. This would meet more than 15 percent of Pasadena's total water demand. Construction on the pipeline could begin next year.
