The City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN) is responsible for operating and maintaining one of the world’s largest wastewater collection and treatment systems. It has been conducting advance planning for its 6,700-mile sewer system for decades using very conservative and technically sound engineering principles and tools. The sewer assets are rapidly deteriorating and so it is paramount for LASAN to continually upgrade the sewer system to ensure that the health of the public and the environment are protected.
