2006 HYPERION OUTFALL DIVERSION

About the Hyperion Diversion

November 28-30, 2006

Hyperion Plant's Five-Mile Outfall is a pipe that runs under the ocean and through which Los Angeles' processed wastewater, called effluent, is discharged on a daily basis. It was built in 1960, and is inspected externally every year. The Five-Mile Outfall has never been inspected internally during its near 50-year existence.

Excerpted from the Hyperion 5-mile Inspection Release Statement.
