Lombardo Associates, Inc. of Newton, MA and Malibu, CA (www.LombardoAssociates.com) has received approval from the CA Department of Public Health for its design of a No Discharge wastewater system for the La Paz development, located in an environmentally sensitive area adjacent to the famous Surfrider Beach in Malibu, California. The development consists of eleven (11) commercial buildings for office and retail use with two restaurants, each with 175 seats, and a proposed new City Hall.
All wastewater will be beneficially reused for toilet flushing and landscape irrigation system. An effluent storage tank is provided for seasonal periods when wastewater generation is greater than reuse requirements. The No Discharge system will reduce development water demand by 56%. A comparable wastewater treatment system has been successfully operating in Malibu for two years and been treating for emerging contaminants and producing effluent compliant with California Department of Public Health (DPH) Title 22 Disinfected Tertiary Treatment Standards requirements, considered the gold standard in the industry. Roof runoff will also be reused and stormwater managed with Low Impact development (LID) techniques.
