City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation Wastewater Control System Replacement Project

  • KDG monitors all critical-path-method schedules and cost control of the contract using Primavera Contract Management.


The City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Sanitation owns and operates approximately 6,700 miles of pipeline and 65 pumping plants, which serve more than four (4) million people in the greater Los Angeles area.  The system collects approximately 550 million gallons of wastewater each day. Currently in progress, this project will completely overhaul the technology controlling the City’s wastewater treatment system.  The City partnered with Honeywell on the $88 million Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project, which began in February 2012.

The project will replace the current control systems with a new enterprise-wide distributed control system for the City’s four treatment facilities: Hyperion Treatment Plant, Terminal Island Water Reclamation Plant, Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant and the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant.  A new wastewater collection system will also be implemented allowing for city- and network-wide integrated operation from a single location. The project is slated for completion in February 2019.
