The City Council will hold a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, June 29 to kick off construction of Malibu’s environmentally friendly Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility (CCWTF) that will treat and reuse wastewater in the Civic Center area. 
Wednesday, June 29, 10:00 AM
Corner of Civic Center Way & Vista Pacifica, Malibu
“The groundbreaking of the Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility marks an important milestone in Malibu’s environmental mission,” Mayor Laura Rosenthal said. “The facility will enable Malibu to protect the natural environment that we cherish, while meeting state mandates to end the use of septic systems in the Civic Center area and producing recycled water to reduce Malibu’s reliance on potable water.”
The recycled water from the facility will provide an important source of water during the drought that can be used for landscape irrigation in the Civic Center area. As the drought continues, cities across the state are pursuing ways to recycle and reuse wastewater. 
The community is invited to join the City Council, Commissioners, civic and business leaders, and representatives from Malibu’s partner agencies to tour the facility site, see renderings and enjoy refreshments.
The CCWTF was planned in response to regulatory actions taken in 2011 by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and the State Water Resources Control Board to prohibit discharges from onsite septic systems in Malibu’s Civic Center area. 
The City has worked with a large stakeholders group consisting of scientists, engineers, environmentalist, the State Water Board, property owners, and community organizations to ensure that the CCWTF is as clean, safe, efficient and green as possible to minimize the impact on the environment and the community.
The facility will use membrane filtration, biological reactors, and ultraviolet light to treat the wastewater and generate up to 70 million gallons per year up of usable Title 22-compliant recycled water, which will be used to irrigate properties in the Civic Center area as well as City parks and public landscaping.  The Assessment District that will fund the approximately $57 million project was approved by Civic Center property owners in January 2016.
