The City of Pasadena has announced $1 million in federal funding to build a new groundwater treatment site.

The future Sunset Complex Project Groundwater Treatment Facility is included in the water system and resources plan, Pasadena’s roadmap for long-term capital and water resource planning for aging infrastructure, future water demand, existing water resources, and opportunities for new water supplies.

sunset“We’ve all experienced the climate crisis firsthand with back-to-back seasons of unprecedented winter storms, following years of historic drought, heatwaves, and wildfires across our region,” said U.S. Representative Judy Chu. “Thankfully, the City of Pasadena is rising to meet the challenge of managing, planning, and investing in our water systems to ensure long-term water security and climate resiliency.

“Through the Community Project Funding program in Congress, I secured $959,752 for the Sunset Complex Groundwater Treatment Facility to support Pasadena as it protects our groundwater basin and provides a lasting water supply for our communities.”

As part of WSRP, the project will help bring more reliability and resilience to Pasadena’s water delivery system. This effort includes the future groundwater treatment facility, groundwater well improvements, and replacement of two reservoirs, one of which Rep. Chu and other attendees toured after the check presentation.

“Pasadena’s local water infrastructure is vital to residents, businesses, and visitors,” said Mayor Gordo. “We are proud to partner with Congresswoman Chu on important projects like this, which will help ensure a reliable, resilient water delivery system in Pasadena today and into the future.”
