The Aliso Creek Water Reclamation Facility (ACWRF) is an innovative water harvesting and treatment system that improves the quality of the local recycled water supply as it removes polluted runoff in Aliso Creek and improves the local ocean environment. It is located in Aliso Canyon at the Coastal Treatment Plant, about 1.5 miles inland from Aliso Beach.
The facility recovers and treats urban runoff from Aliso Creek and blends it with water from the Advanced Wastewater Treatment (AWT) system to reduce the salinity of the recycled water supply. The facility can also treat water from the AWT system to supplement runoff. Recycled water is used to irrigate golf courses, parks, school grounds, street medians and other commercial and public landscaped areas.
