Scattergood Seawater Desal Pilot Project

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

Trussell Technologies, Inc. is part of CDM’s team for the Scattergood Desalination pilot project. This project is the next step for LADWP in their evaluation of the feasibility of seawater desalination to augment their available drinking water supply. Trussell Technologies, Inc. was tasked with developing the technical memorandum to identify the process trains that will be pilot tested in the upcoming years along with water quality goals for each treatment process and a final treated water quality goal for distribution. This TM included the selection of an appropriate desalination process, pretreatment and coarse screening process. Trussell Technologies, Inc. was also tasked to perform an analysis on how the Long-Term 2 Surface Water Treatment Rule would be applied to the selected treatment train.
