Water Inspection Trips
Southern California receives water from a variety of sources. Groundwater, groundwater recharge, and recycled water provide only half of all Orange County’s total water supply. The remaining supply is imported either from the Colorado River or from Northern California.
Each year, Orange County elected officials, business leaders, community leaders and others, are invited to participate on inspection trips to key water facilities throughout the state of California. These trips are sponsored by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) and the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC).
The goal is to educate our stakeholders, and to encourage critical dialogue about the future of our state’s water supply. By providing a valuable, first-hand look at the issues of water management, water quality, water supply, environmental restoration, agricultural challenges and water conservation, guests will return from an inspection trip with a solid foundation of water knowledge and will be able to engage others in an important discussion about their own local resources.
