The City presently operates one large treatment facility-the Hyperion Treatment Plant. The treated effluent is discharged into Santa Monica Bay through a 5-mile outfall pipe. The solids removed in treatment (sludge) are also discharged into Santa Monica Bay through a 7-mile outfall pipe. Since the solids removed in treatment (sludge) are also discharged, there is a controversy as to whether the current treatment system results in a net improvement to marine water quality. The Environmental Impact Statement examines in considerable detail the existing impacts of these discharges on the marine environment.
