About Our Presentation

The Clearwater Project protects local waterways by addressing aging infrastructure.

The project involves building a new 7-mile tunnel to convey cleaned water from the wastewater treatment plant (Warren Facility) in Carson to the existing ocean outfalls located at Royal Palms Beach in San Pedro. The new 18-foot diameter tunnel will replace the existing 8-foot and 12-foot tunnels that are 60 and 80 years old.

Construction began in 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in 2027.

Make plans now to attend this informative Industry Insight on Wednesday, April 17. We're certain you'll want to dig in to all the details.
