About the Edward C. Little WRF
The Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility (ECLWRF) is the largest water recycling facility of its kind in the United States and was recognized by the National Water Research Institute in 2002 as one of only six national centers for water treatment technologies.
The ECLWRF is the only treatment facility in the country that produces five different qualities of “designer” or custom-made recycled water that meet the unique needs of West Basin’s municipal, commercial and industrial customers.
The facility produces approximately 40 million gallons of useable water every day, conserving enough drinking water to meet the needs of 80,000 households for a year
