Commerce, CA – The Central Basin Municipal Water District has completed construction on a recycled water project in the City of Santa Fe Springs that will initially provide 80 Acre- Feet of recycled water to United Technologies Corporation Aerospace Systems (UTC) in Santa Fe Springs. The project is scheduled to commence with water deliveries in April 2018. The use of recycled water at the site will be for UTC’s cooling towers and will replace over 95% of UTC’s Santa Fe Springs facilities use of potable water.

“For over 25 years, Central Basin has been a leader and invested time and resources in expanding the use of recycled water in Southeast Los Angeles County” said Central Basin Board President Robert Apodaca. “We would like to thank UTC for becoming the latest connection to the Central Basin recycled water system”. 

The UTC facility in Santa Fe Springs will be one of the largest consumers of recycled water in the Central Basin service area. It will be the third largest in Santa Fe Springs and tenth largest throughout the District’s service area. Future expanded use by UTC could increase to 130 Acre-Feet annually or over 42 million gallons of water per year.
