Civic Center Water Treatment Facility

CCWTF Site Picture

The Malibu Civic Center Water Treatment Facility (CCWTF), located at 24000 Civic Center Way, is a centralized treatment facility that will treat, reuse, and/or dispose of wastewater flows from properties in the Malibu Civic Center area.

The project was to be developed in in three phases. Phase One encompassed the construction of the treatment plant and the collection and distribution systems to nearby parcels. The treatment plant was designed and constructed with the ability to expand for Phases Two and Three.

The CCWTF was developed in response to regulatory actions taken by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and the State Water Resources Control Board to prohibit discharges from onsite wastewater discharge systems (OWDS) in the Civic Center area, and to ban new OWDS, based on a phased schedule.

The CCWTF was highlighted in the March 29, 2020, Water and Wastewater Digest - The Fresh Scent of Wastewater Management
