Recycled water helps promote conservation by offsetting demand for precious drinking water. You may use recycled water only for landscaping purposes such as maintaining trees, shrubs, gardens and lawns.

To be eligible to receive free recycled water at the fill station, customers must complete a brief training class before filling up. Upon completion, participants can receive up to 300 gallons of disinfected tertiary recycled water per visit.

To receive recycled water, you must:

  • Be an LADWP customer. Bring your LADWP bill and a government-issued photo ID to the Recycled Water Fill Station training for verification.
  • Take the Recycled Water Fill Station training provided by LADWP.
  • Submit a signed Recycled Water User Application and Agreement form.
  • Place the provided “Do Not Drink” purple stickers on ALL containers used for transporting recycled water.
  • Bring your own water-tight lid containers to the fill station. All containers will be checked for proper labeling. You must carry and maneuver your containers; LADWP personnel will not help load or carry any containers.
