LADWP Sepulveda-Venice Water Pipeline Connection Project

Updated: 04/03/2019

Starting Summer 2018, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will be constructing a new trunk line that connects the LADWP distribution system to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) water supply. This new trunk line will increase reliability of LADWP's water distribution system to the West LA Area. 

The project includes construction of a new regulator station on Bentley Ave., south of Venice to control and regulate water pressure coming from the MWD system and a pressure relief station located on Bentley Ave., north of Venice Blvd.

Construction will take place Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 7:00pm. Some Saturday work may be required. The Project is expected to be completed in Summer 2020.

For more information, contact Project Manager Annette Flores at 213-367-0827, Associate Project Manager Mary Olmos at 213-367-4475, or Community Affairs Deborah Hong at 213-367-5204.
