Malibu’s Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility Advances with Approvals of Construction Contracts & Land Purchase Agreement

Malibu’s environmentally friendly facility to treat and reuse wastewater in the Civic Center area made significant advances forward during the City Council meeting on Monday, May 23 as the Council voted to approve construction contracts, and the land purchase for the facility site.

“Today marks an important step forward in completing the facility that will enable Malibu to protect the natural environment that we value so highly, while meeting state mandates to end the use of septic systems in the Civic Center area, and saving water on landscape irrigation during the historic drought,” Mayor Laura Rosenthal said.

“The recycled water from the facility will provide an important water source during the historic drought we’re grappling with. As the drought continues, cities across the state are moving in this direction, and Malibu is ahead of the curve.”

The City Council approved several contracts for the construction of the Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility (CCWTF), which is scheduled to begin construction in July.

The contracts include a $21.7 million contract for construction of the CCWTF’s main plant with Myers & Sons Construction; a $20.5 million contract for construction of the CCWVVTF Pipelines and Pump Stations Project with Vido Artukovich & Son, lnc. Nidmar, Inc., JV; and a $2.1 million contract with Cascade Drilling, LP for construction of the CCWWTF Injection Wells Project.

The Council also approved the purchase agreement with the Malibu Bay Company for the acquisition of the 4.2-acre parcel where the CCWTF will be built, located at 24000 Civic Center Way where an older existing treatment facility now sits.

Background
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 turn it into 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 City parks and public landscaping.

The Assessment District that will fund the approximately $57 million project was approved by Civic Center property owners on January 25.
