Emergency Management

The Water Emergency Response Organization of Orange County (WEROC), administered by the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) , supports and manages countywide emergency preparedness, planning, response, and recovery efforts among Orange County water and wastewater utilities.

To carry out its mission, WEROC provides essential resources, trainings, and exercises to member agencies and to coordinating partners throughout the County and State. The program takes an active role in engaging trained Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staff and maintaining two EOC’s that are used to coordinate emergency response operations during large scale disasters.

The program is supported by a group of Orange County water and wastewater agencies and is funded by the Cities of Anaheim, Fullerton, and Santa Ana, MWDOC, the Orange County Sanitation District, Orange County Water District and the South Orange County Wastewater Authority.
