Low turbidity recycled water with low concentrations of ammonia and suspended solids was required by an oil refinery in greater Los Angeles. To provide this water, a recycled water reclamation facility is in the process of installing a tertiary membrane bioreactor. Mr. Bryce Danker of Hazen and Sawyer will present an overview of the design and testing of this modern recycled water facility.
When: Thursday, December 14th at 6pm
Where: Taix French Restaurant, 1911 W. Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90240

Your friends at ASCE OC YMF are hosting a fun night of social drinking at Huntington Beach (Main Street). Being close to the holidays, it will be a themed event. Time to dig into the far reaches of your closet and look for that ugly sweater you have but probably have never worn. The theme is Ugly Sweater, which is hopefully self explanitory. Matching hats and other articles of clothing are also highly recommended. Time to get into the holiday spirit!
The Bar Crawl will start at 8:00 pm and we will hop around to all the exciting pubs and bars. We shall meet and start at The Irishman (see address above). From there we can go in any direction and hit up a variety of bars. Some of the more popular ones are Baja Sharkeez, Killarney, 2nd Floor ART Drinks, Gallagher's, and The Longboard. All are within walking distance of one another, and there are more as well. The bar types can range from pubs, wine bars, live bands playing, and other speciality drink places, so there is something for everyone!
There are places to park as well as the streets off the main road, but it is strongly advised that everyone take a cab, uber, lyft, or get picked up by someone.
Please read our event guide page (http://ymf-oc.org/eventguide) for our current general event and ticket buying guidelines.
We will be volunteering with the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, a local non-profit organization, helping those interested in becoming U.S. citizens apply for citizenship. Prospective volunteers should look at the Pro Bono Training Institute (PBTI) segment on completion of the Naturalization form. Please make an account to view the trainings by following the PBTI link at: http://pbtraining.org/. Naturalization 101 and the Filling out the N-400 modules are the most important ones for persons who are going to assist on the one-on-one form completion. All forms will be QA/QC’d by lawyers; but for a better understanding, the other modules under Naturalization are optional. A copy of the blank N-400 form is attached, so volunteers watching the training video can follow along. Alternatively, an in-person training date may be coordinated if there is enough interest. Please fill out the Confidentiality Agreement and Non staff Volunteer Form. All volunteers are welcome, special need for bilingual speakers (Spanish-English).
What: Naturalization (Citizen) Workshop - Handle one-on-one interviews/form completion, serve as runners for copying forms, and directing the public.
When: 9AM – 2PM, Saturday, December 16, 2017
Where: Ron Olson Justice Center, 1550 W. 8th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017
Come join us for our December hike to Echo Mountain via the Sam Merrill Trail. We'll meet at the trailhead to Cobb Estate at Lake Ave and E Loma Alta Dr in Altadena at 8am. We'll get to check out the cool ruins of an old railroad as well as the estate that was created at the end of the hike. If our group is feeling especially ambitious, we can go farther to Inspiration Point or just stick with this relatively easy 6 mile hike. Try the echophone at the top and truly understand the meaning of the mountain.
When: Sunday, December 17th at 8:00am-12:30pm
Where: Sam Merrill Trail, Altadena, CA 91001 (Corner of Lake and Alta Loma)
