I'm always fascinated by the history and mechanics of how LA sources and treats its water supply because without it, the City of Angles would not exist. Its a precious resource that too many Angelenos take for granted until our water is rationed during times of drought. So come join me as we tour the Las Virgenes Water Treatmet plant and learn everything (then some) about how we get our water and the complex way it starts from snow in our mounatins, to treated, drinkable water in our faucets.
Are you curious about where your drinking water comes from? What happens to your wastewater? Interested in knowing more about what happens at the Water District?
You can find these answers and more during one of our FREE quarterly tours and find out first hand. Learn about the journey of your drinking water, watershed stewardship, the process of wastewater reclamation, water conservation, and the composting process. Tours include a chance to meet other residents, a presentation on current issues facing the district, on-site visits to our facilities, and a question and answer period while you enjoy a light lunch.
Each tour begins at 8:45 a.m. and lasts until about 1 p.m. (approximately 4.25 hours). Moderate walking and stairs are to be expected, along with boarding and exiting a school bus. Children must be 12 or older and those under age 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
After the tour, if the group is up for it, we can go for a Bonus Round and check out the Old Trapper's lodge statues in Pierce College on the way back to Encino: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2046
