Orange County Water District (OCWD)


The OCWD is a regional water agency focused on providing reliable, high quality water supply in a cost-effective and environmentally conscious manner. As part of this mission, the District oversees the management and replenishment of Orange County's groundwater basin, elevates water reliability for residents, prevents seawater intrusion, and protects OCWD rights to the Santa Ana River. In addition to protection of water supply and access, OCWD also performs regular conversation-focused community education, and project work focused on restoration and protection of habitat for the federally-listed Santa Ana Sucker. The partnership in LRPPG management will allow OCWD to continue its ten-year efforts in Santa Ana sucker preservation at Sunnyslope Creek, and to collaborate with other site partners on design and facilitation of watershed-wide education and outreach.
