In November 2008, the City of Oxnard, located sixty miles northwest of Los Angeles, commissioned its first, large scale, brackish water reverse osmosis (BWRO) desalination water treatment facility as part of its comprehensive regional water resources development program. The uniquely designed RO uses energy saving technologies in a hybrid configuration to minimize power consumption. The 7.5 MGD ( 28,400 m3/day) RO has been operating stably for three years and affords the opportunity to compare the tradeoff between its original capital cost and its operating cost based on actual performance data.
