Little retired effective May 20 having served since 1989. Director Little has been credited for his vision and leadership of the Board of Directors and was instrumental in the development of the state-of-the-art water recycling facility in El Segundo, CA and to diversify the agency's water portfolio to not only include wastewater recycling, but water conservation and more recently ocean-water desalination. In 2007, to honor Director Little's leadership and vision, the Board of Directors renamed the El Segundo water recycling facility the "Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility."
