The City of Malibu broke ground on their long awaited stormwater treatment plant – one piece of the City’s Legacy Park Project.  The project not only includes a stormwater treatment plant to clean surface water before it reaches nearby beaches but also includes a park, learning center and native habitat. The treatment plant is scheduled to go on-line one year from now.

“Legacy Park is going to act as Malibu’s environmental cleaning machine,” said Mayor Andy Stern. “It will reduce pollution from stormwater, improve the city’s water quality, and allow residents to enjoy the health and recreation benefits of an open space area and a clean ocean.”

The City is leading the effort. RMC Water and Environment is the consulting engineer on the project.
