Energy Solutions: A Guide for Water and Waste Treatment
West Basin Municipal Water District Saves $90,000 Annually
Already a leader in water conservation and recycling, West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) continues to step up its commitment to energy savings with enhancements to its Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility (ECLWRF) in El Segundo, California, that are improving efficiencies and enabling Demand Response (DR) participation.
The ECLWRF produces 30 million gallons of recycled water daily, conserving enough drinking water to meet the needs of 60,000 households for a year. West Basin General Manager Rich Nagel notes that the former Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system was “maxed out” on what it could control, but the upgrade to the system along with installing variable frequency drives (VFDs) to their pumps helps ensure ongoing reliability and allows the district to manage more equipment automatically. With Time-Of-Use rates, it’s the perfect time to learn from West Basin’s energy-saving strategies and apply them to your facilities. Read more.
