Fill station is the third to open in the City
LOS ANGELES (OCTOBER 21, 2022)–The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will open a third Residential Recycled Water Fill Station at Delano Park, 15100 Erwin Street, Van Nuys, CA 91411, this Saturday, October 22. The fill station will be open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
At any of the city’s three fill stations, LADWP customers can receive up to 300 free gallons of recycled water, per visit. This water can be used for landscaping purposes, such as maintaining trees, shrubs, gardens, and lawns, and to water edible fruits, vegetables, and herbs. All edible items must be washed with drinking water before consumption.
In order to participate in the Program, customers must bring their LADWP bill and a government issued ID to the fill station, receive a short training at the fill station, submit a signed Recycled Water User Application and Agreement Form, and bring water-tight containers with LADWP-provided stickers on them.
LADWP’s Residential Recycled Water Fill Station Program supports the City’s water conservation efforts, as the city and the region is in the midst of a third year of drought.
“In light of the severe drought conditions we are facing, the fill stations help our customers offset the demand for drinking water by taking advantage of recycled water for non-drinking uses, while helping to promote and encourage the acceptance and use of recycled water,” said Anselmo Collins, Senior Assistant General Manager of the Water System.
The Delano Park fill station is the third location to open as part of the program. The other two operating fill stations, which re-opened in July of 2022, are located at the Los Angeles-Glendale Water Reclamation Plant, 4600 Colorado Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90039 and the Los Angeles Zoo, 5333 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027.
