Tripepi Smith delivered new architectural imagery for the Water Replenishment District’s (WRD) newly built Albert Robles Center (ARC). The water treatment facility both purifies 14 million gallons per day of recycled water through advanced water treatment processes and offers learning opportunities with over 40 water exhibits that address various water education topics.

“The Water Replenishment District is making critical investments in the water supply of our service area and in the communities we serve. The new ARC provides clean water for groundwater replenishment and excellent educational opportunities for people of all ages,” said WRD Senior Public Affairs Representative, Monica Sijder. “Tripepi Smith has consistently delivered high quality imagery of our events over the years. It is always so easy to work with their team on projects like this.”

WRD will use the collection of stock images to update their educational materials with timely information about the facility and for their tours. WRD also uses the images on social media to educate and raise awareness of the 5.2 acre facility in the City of Pico Rivera.

“Visual imagery – photos especially – are a critical point of education and engagement for local government. Agencies need strong imagery to catch the attention of their communities and to quickly remind the public of the services they are providing,” said President Ryder Todd Smith. “Tripepi Smith has a great team of phenomenal photographers who can deliver creative ideas and shoot photographs that enhance our client’s outreach efforts. WRD has built an amazing new facility in Pico Rivera that will serve surrounding communities for decades. Tripepi Smith is excited to be a part of the team sharing that story.”

“It’s always exciting to work with WRD. They make learning about water conservation a fun and engaging experience for people of all ages and this new facility was especially exciting to see come to fruition,” said Senior Graphic Artist Kjerstin Wingert. “While touring the grounds, it is easy to see the level of care that went into every detail. The Albert Robles Center is eco-friendly, sustainable, educational, and dare I say fun!”

The Center also boasts bioswells, permeable concrete, a rooftop garden and an impressive water tasting room. WRD offers free virtual education programming including tours of ARC for schools, youth groups and scout troops. For more information about the state of the art facility, please visit
