Liberty is proud to deliver safe, reliable water service to our Los Angeles County area customers. Our investments in our water system allow us to continue to provide this service today and tomorrow.
The water systems have over 250 miles of pipeline, the oldest of which was installed in 1936-1939. Replacing older pipeline helps reduce the risk of water leaks, supports fire protection in surrounding communities, and maintains service reliability for our customers.
Key to maintaining a safe and reliable water system, new water system valves minimize service interruptions and damage caused by leaks. Exercising valves help to identify valves that may no longer be functioning properly and must be replaced. The placement of new valves it determined to minimize customer outages during water system repairs and in the event of a shut-down.
Exercising fire hydrants help to identify the hydrants that must be replaced to maintain fire protection for customers. Placement of new fire hydrants is determined to best meet current fire protection standards.
Existing water service lines will be replaced to maintain reliable water service for customers. This will help minimize service interruptions, reduce the risk of water leaks, and maintain water system operability.
Currently under construction, this groundwater well will serve the Bellflower/Norwalk water system once complete. Groundwater wells are used to help meet peak customer demands, regulate flows from purchased water connections, maintain local pressures during high demands, and meet local firefighting needs.
Replacement of existing electrical motor control centers (MCC) at several booster pump stations will help maintain reliability of these important sources of water supply. The new MCCs will have solid state technology and controls, including a manual transfer switch for emergency back-up power supplies.
The latest drought emphasizes the importance of having groundwater pumping rights in the central Groundwater Basin. Having pumping rights allows the utility to avoid rationing and is more cost-effective than purchasing imported water. Purchased water allows for capacity to store groundwater for future drought conditions.
