LOS ANGELES — A routine maintenance test will be conducted Wednesday for the 1-mile outfall from the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant, which was the site of a massive sewage spill this summer.
The plant in Playa Del Rey — just west of El Segundo — annually tests its three bypass gates to ensure they are properly functioning. During the tests, which will occur today and Thursday from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., 250,000 gallons of fully treated and disinfected wastewater will be released through the 1-mile outfall and then pumped back into the plant before reaching the ocean.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will not close the beaches, since the wastewater is fully treated and not expected to be received into the water, but the department will monitor bacterial levels today and Thursday.
The 1-mile outfall is typically used for excess stormwater, downstream maintenance, repairs or emergency use.
The northbound lane of Vista Del Mar Boulevard will close in front of the plant, located at 12000 Vista Del Mar, on Thursday from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m., officials said.
