More than a dozen Orange County water suppliers have passed resolutions in support of the California WaterFix and EcoRestore, as the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) continues to emphasize the importance of building twin tunnels beneath the Delta to ensure a reliable water supply.
The Orange County Water Reliability Study found the WaterFix the single-most cost-effective large-scale project to ensure reliability for Orange County and Southern California.
Support has come from large districts such as Santa Margarita Water, as well as smaller agencies such as Serrano Water. Cities from Huntington Beach to Brea have also weighed in with support. MWDOC directors endorsed the project in December.
MWDOC is working all OC agencies and cities to garner support, as well as business and civic groups. Organizations that would like more information to support the project — including presentations — should contact MWDOC Director of Public Affairs Damon Micalizzi at (714) 593-5014 or DMicalizzi@mwdoc.com.
