Treatment Project Provides Clean Water to the City of Maywood by Water Replenishment District Nov 29, 2021 Member Submitted News Speaker Anthony Rendon joined the Water Replenishment District, State Water Resources Control Board Member Nichole Morgan, and Maywood Mutual Water Company No. 2 to celebrate the completion of a new water treatment project in the City of Maywood, CA. The facility removes manganese and iron, ensuring that residents have access to high-quality and affordable drinking water. Speaker Anthony Rendon played an integral role bringing this water treatment system online. After residents and businesses of Maywood raised concerned about water quality, Assemblymember Rendon introduced legislation which allocated $1 million for treatment in Maywood Mutual Water Company No. 2’s water system. “I am committed to ensuring that residents in my district have access to clean and safe drinking water,” said California State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. “I have worked hard in the legislature to fund programs like this in my district and throughout the state.” WRD led the effort to secure funding for the project including $1.7M from Proposition 1. “WRD is proud to bring this water treatment system online and ensure people of Maywood have access to high-quality and affordable drinking water,” said Water Replenishment District Board Vice President Sergio Calderon. “We were able to complete this project because Speaker Rendon and the State Water Resources Control Board took quick action to secure funding for this project, and we appreciate Maywood Mutual No. 2 for working with us to implement an effective water treatment system.” “We are thankful to the Water Replenishment District and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon for helping us to not only secure funding, but also for helping us build the treatment plant. This was truly a turnkey project. We could not have achieved this without the partnership with WRD. Because of the hard work of everyone, our residents have clean, safe, and affordable drinking water,” said Joe Rodriguez, General Manager of Maywood Mutual Water Company No. 2.
