At Mount Sinai Hollywood Hills, we use and have used reclaimed/recycled water for all of our landscaping needs since 1987. We acquire our reclaimed water through the DWP Los Angeles Glendale Water Reclamation Plant, a facility that recycles 20 million gallons of water per day and provides the treated water to nearby golf courses, businesses and cemeteries.
Because recycled water is not currently available at Mount Sinai Simi Valley, we have cut our overall water use by irrigating our interment areas with reduced water volume, replacing our landscaping with drought resistant vegetation. turning off all decorative water fountains and features, testing drought resistant grasses, executing drip irrigation, and we have also discontinued watering the non-developed areas of the park.
