The Water Replenishment District of Southern California on recently signed a deal with a Walnut-based developer to build its water recycling plant in Pico Rivera.
J.F. Shea Construction has agreed to construct the $110 million plant that has been in the works for 12 years.
Construction of the project, called the Groundwater Reliability Improvement Project, will begin this fall and be completed in 2018.
Shea and the 55-year-old district will build a last-stage water treatment plant that treats wastewater from toilets, showers and sinks already treated by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District’s San Jose Creek Water Reclamation Plant near Whittier and piped along the river’s edge. Water at the Pico Rivera plant will be treated to the purification level of distilled water, said WRD officials.
