The Westside Produced Water project, built for Chevron Corporation, is a plant designed to filter produced water from the Cymric oil field in central California, replacing acres of potentially environmentally harmful evaporative ponds. Produced water is a byproduct of oil production containing leftover hydrocarbons, minerals, and other contaminants, which make the water unfit for human, animal, or plant use. The Westside plant filters these contaminants, making the water suitable for further reuse in oil production. With production increasing faster at Cymric than at any other field in California, the plant offers an important resource for oil extraction in the region.
