SCV Water Hosts Virtual Bridgeport Community Listening Session on Nov. 2
Attendees will learn more about a water treatment facility planned along the bike path south of Bridgeport Park
SANTA CLARITA – SCV Water invites the community to the Virtual Bridgeport Community Listening Session. Attendees will learn more about the planned groundwater treatment facility as well as hear updates from the August Community Listening Session.
This is the second of two listening sessions and takes place virtually on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 6 to 8 p.m. Attendees are asked to register by Friday, Oct. 28, at bit.ly/swellsNov2. The Zoom link will be provided to all registered attendees. Community members who cannot attend the event can learn more about the project and participate in a survey to provide feedback by visiting www.yourSCVwater.com/swells.
During this virtual event, SCV Water’s team will answer questions from attendees, as well as share key information, including:
• 4-1-1 on the project’s impacts and benefits
• How SCV Water is restoring groundwater availability due to PFAS
• Updates from the August Community Listening Session
“We invite community members to join us to learn more about this ambitious treatment project that will restore local water affected by PFAS substances,” said SCV Water’s Senior Engineer Orlando Moreno, P.E. “A local, reliable water supply for our customers is critical, especially during the drought.”
When constructed, the $16 million groundwater treatment plant, which will be located on Bridgeport Lane across the street from Bridgeport Park, will remove PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) using ion exchange treatment at three existing wells.
These wells will produce up to 6,000 gallons per minute (9,678 acre-feet per year) of groundwater. That is equivalent to water used by more than 10,000 households annually.
The project will also ensure a local, reliable water supply for our customers and reduce our reliance on costly imported water.
