Weymouth Treatment Plant Turns 70
Completed in 1940, the F.E. Weymouth Water Treatment Plant, one of Metropolitan's five treatment plants, ranks as one of the largest water treatment facilities in the United States, with a design capacity of 520 million gallons per day for distribution to Los Angeles and Orange counties. The plant is currently undergoing extensive rehabilitation with upgrades to various systems, including electrical, and plans are underway for an ozone treatment system and a solar power generation facility.
