SWS 2020 Top Projects: Albert Robles Center for Water Recycling & Environmental Learning

SWS 2020 Top Projects: Albert Robles Center for Water Recycling & Environmental Learning

In this video, SWS Managing Editor Katie Johns is joined by Rob Beste, assistant general manager of the Water Replenishment District of Southern California to discuss another one of the 2020 Top Projects –the Albert Robles Center for Water Recycling & Environmental Learning.

This site, located in Pico Rivera, California, is a multi-purpose and multi-benefit area that consists of a 48,00 square foot advanced water treatment facility, a digital 25,000 square foot learning center and demonstration gardens. A storm water management system was installed as part of this project to maximize onsite filtration and on/off site groundwater recharge while also preventing pollutant loading off site. Components of the system include, pervious pavement, bioretention basins and an underground treatment and infiltration system. Additionally, a rooftop garden was installed to capture and harvest rainfall. 

The videos in this Top Project series will be presented in no particular order, except our final video, which will feature our #1 2020 Top Project.
