Tillman Water Reclamation Plant

Isn't it curious how in the Y2K test of the Tillman Water Reclamation Plant the feed gate to Tillman was deliberately shut (June 18)? I thought the purpose of the test was to see how the plant would operate (i.e., actually treat sewage) on its backup power system. Diversion of sewage to Hyperion during the test isn't going to demonstrate Tillman's operational capabilities very well, is it? It looks like DWP wanted to be able to say that it passed its Y2K test with flying colors when, in fact, little was actually tested.

The gardens, located at 6100 Woodley Ave., have azaleas, cherry trees, magnolias, weeping willows, irises and waterlilies that are set around stone paths, ponds, waterfalls, bridges and a traditional Japanese-style building and teahouse. Daytime tours are offered year-round on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Starting today, the Japanese garden that camouflages Los Angeles' Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant in the Sepulveda Basin will be open for tours. Reservations are required. The opening of the 6.5-acre garden, originally planned for the end of last year, was postponed by "leaks in the lakes, paper work, and trying to sift through the very good ideas presented by a lot of experts and a lot of people," said Doris Meyer, San Fernando Valley deputy for Mayor Tom Bradley.

As part of the East Valley Water Recycling Project construction, a half-mile portion of the westside lanes on Woodley Avenue in Van Nuys--from Victory Boulevard to Woodley Avenue Park--will be closed until at least December, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power officials said. The closure is due to work underway to connect 54-inch-diameter water pipes from the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant in the Sepulveda Basin to the pipes on Woodley Avenue.

The City Council has stepped up its fight against what it considers unfair clean water rules for the Los Angeles River. The council has voted to go to court to block enforcement of new water discharge standards set by the State Water Resources Control Board for the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant in Van Nuys and the Los Angeles/Glendale Water Reclamation Plant in the east Valley. Council members set aside up to $300,000 to pay for legal fees. Fines could amount to $6,000 per day.

Nearing an end to a years-long debate over septic waste disposal, the City Council has given tentative approval to a program establishing four citywide dump sites. The move helps alleviate pressure on a site within the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant in Van Nuys--the only site previously approved for septic waste disposal--and may help eliminate illegal dumping in other areas.

So you think you know L.A. Have you been to the Banana Museum? How about the Tower of Pallets, or that kitchen in Santa Monica that is entirely covered in tiny glass beads? And if you've never stopped by Hollywood Cemetery to admire Carl Bigsby's tombstone--an exact marble replica of an Atlas missile--then you just haven't lived.

A plan to build a water pipeline through Woodley Golf Course in the Sepulveda Basin that annoyed many golfers, including Councilman Ernani Bernardi, is dead, a Los Angeles city engineering official said Friday. The plan was dropped because city officials found a way to route the pipeline around the 18-hole municipal course without incurring the high extra costs they had feared, said Sal Oregon, Bureau of Engineering liaison to the council.
