Residential Recycled Water Filling Station
Through a partnership between LA Sanitation and LADWP, the City of Los Angeles now offers free recycled water to all LADWP/LASAN customers. Our customers can now get disinfected recycled water for approved purposes, free of charge. Just bring your water containers with water-tight lids to the Residential Recycled Water Fill Station (RWFS).
Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant
4600 Colorado Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90039
Open every Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (Closed on holidays and rainy days.)
Recycled water helps promote conservation by offsetting demand for precious drinking water. Customers may use recycled water only for landscaping purposes, such as maintaining trees, shrubs, gardens, and lawns.
To be eligible to receive free recycled water at the fill station, customers must complete a brief training class before filling up. Upon completion, participants can receive up to 300 gallons of disinfected tertiary recycled water per operating day.
In order to qualify for the Residential RWFS, participants must:
1. Be an LADWP customer. Customers must bring their LADWP bill and a government issued ID to the Recycled Water Fill Station training for verification.
2. Take the Recycled Water Fill Station training provided by the LADWP. Training is free and will be conducted on-site at the fill station.
3. RSVP by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Submit a signed Recycled Water User Application and Agreement Form.
5. Place the LADWP-provided “Do Not Drink” purple stickers on ALL containers used for transporting recycled water.
6. Bring your own water-tight lid containers to the fill station. All containers will be checked for proper labeling. You must carry and maneuver your containers; LADWP personnel will not help load or carry any containers.
Recycled Water Containers
Bring your own water-tight lid container(s) to the fill station. Tie-down straps to secure the containers are recommended for your safety.
Participants will be allowed to pick up a maximum of 300 gallons of recycled water, free of charge, per program operating day. Plan accordingly when determining how much water to pick up and keep in mind the size of your vehicle when selecting transport containers. Ensure your vehicle can handle the amount and weight of recycled water you collect and transport. Driving a vehicle with heavy, sloshing liquid decreases vehicle stability and requires longer stopping distance.
