Project Description: The Long Beach Municipal Urban Stormwater Treatment
(LB-MUST) Project proposes to improve water quality by intercepting and treating the dry weather flows and a portion of the first flush of stormwater runoff normally discharging into the Los Angeles River.
The byproduct of the LB-MUST water quality treatment is recycled water which can be used to sustain proposed wetlands riparian habitat. The wetlands will be part of the total treatment train of the LB-MUST as well as function as a storage basin for the recycled water.
The LB-MUST Project provides over 5-acres of new coastal marsh and migratory watering areas adjacent to the Los Angeles River.
