    The Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts operate and maintain 11 treatment plants to process about 400 million gallons of wastewater each day. Many of these plants have been in operation since the 1970s, and the primary treatment structures that are subject to hydrogen sulfide corrosion are in need of rehabilitation. This presentation will showcase the rehab projects developed for the Los Coyotes and Long Beach Water Reclamation Plants. You will learn about:

    • The Districts’ engineering design process
    • Strategies to divert and reroute the influent flow
    • Approaches to managing risks through construction sequence planning
    • Concrete repair and surface preparation
    • The Districts’ experience with protective lining and coating systems

    1.2 contact hours towards CWEA's: ECI, MT, EIT

    Please join CWEA LABS for a presentation by Russ Vakharia, Supervising Engineer at the LA County Sanitation Districts, on the construction of a new 7-mile long effluent tunnel—the longest single drive pressurized face tunnel ever constructed in California!  He will discuss construction challenges facing the tunnel, which has over 30 curves, will go through a variety of heterogenous ground conditions, is located under the water table, and will experience significant areas of squeezing ground.

    The Sanitation Districts operates the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant, which treats wastewater from over 5 million people in the Los Angeles basin. The JWPCP currently relies on two tunnels—over 60 and 80 years old—to convey treated wastewater from Carson, CA to the ocean. The new tunnel is being constructed to ensure the reliability and capacity of the system and address aging infrastructure, seismic, and overflow concerns associated with the old tunnels.
