In early 2020, the City of Lomita was forced to shut down public tours of the Cypress Water Production Facility (CWPF) for the safety and health of residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. After public gathering mandates relaxed in 2021, construction for the new Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filtration system at CWPF began, and public tours remained on-hold as the site was not safe for tours.
Although the GAC project is not expected to come online until late summer 2022, residents will be welcomed back for tours of the CWPF beginning this July. Just as before, as part of our commitment to open and transparent operations of the City’s water system, a series of one-hour tours of CWPF are open to residents and business owners in the Lomita area. The tours are an opportunity for residents to get answers to some common water questions and to discuss the City’s water supply and upcoming projects and programs.
If you’re unable to make any of the scheduled tours, please check out our Water Infrastructure Explainer Video to learn more about Lomita’s water system.
The City will continue water tours in the 2023 new year.
