Treatment Plant Tour

Plant Tours are temporarily not available due to construction for Livermore Water Reclamation Plant improvements. In the meantime, you may visit the Livermore Water Reclamation Plant Armchair Tour. You may also be interested in the Water Environment Federation 3D tour of a wastewater treatment plant to learn more about wastewater treatment.

Ever wonder what happens to the water you use after it goes down the drain? Find out by taking a tour of the Livermore Water Reclamation Plant. The Water Resources Division conducts free tours for groups of five or more.

For visitors 9 years through adult, the tour includes the following areas: primary treatment, secondary treatment, tertiary treatment, solids handling, and analytical laboratory. Tours last approximately two hours and involve walking indoors and outdoors and some stair climbing. Please note that handicap services are not available for a portion of the tour.

For younger visitors, ages 5 to 8, the tour includes learning about wastewater treatment and pollution prevention through participation in an interactive Wastewater Treatment Activity. The youngsters will also have an up-close look at the ocean murals on the plant site. Tour lasts approximately one hour and involves some walking indoors and outdoors.

Public tours are offered at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month from April through October. For those unable to participate during the weekday, tours are offered at 9 a.m. on the fourth Saturday in June, July and August.

Reservations are required a minimum of two weeks in advance, as space is limited; preference is given to City of Livermore customers. Specialty, technical or special request tours may be accommodated pending the availability of staff and adequate advance notice.
