We’re excited to announce the #GWRS broke its own record for creating water. Over 105,000 acre-feet of water was created in fiscal year 2017-18. That’s enough water for 850,000 people per day; more than a third of our service area’s population! Cheers to this great local resource!

Don Houlihan knows a thing or two about water, Don and his field headquarters team manage three of CA's biggest water assets. #OCWD is proud to feature Don and his team in this installment of our #WaterIsLife series.

On June 14, 1933, the District Act was signed and brought into law, forming the Orange County Water District. Today we celebrate our 85th anniversary of being OC's groundwater authority.

After 44 years, OCWD's Bill Dunivin is retiring, but not before starring in the first of our #WaterforOCLife video series. Congrats to a #waterreuse #GWRS poineer!

Thanks for stopping by @antonioforcalifornia for a tour of the world's largest #waterreuse project of its kind, the Groundwater Replenishment System.

Why should Southern California pursue potable reuse?
Water scientist Peter Gleick from The Pacific Institute sums it up best:
“Every gallon of wastewater that’s treated to a high standard and put to use, is a gallon of water that Southern California doesn’t have to get from somewhere else.” Original post by @shadowofdrought

The Groundwater Replenishment System is #officiallyamazing in our attempt to set a @guinnessworldrecords title for the most wastewater recycled into drinking water in 24 hours. The attempt marked the #GWRS 10 year anniversary, recycling over 100 million US gallons in that 24 hour period.
