Orange County

Mission

The primary objectives of the Orange County Chapter of WateReuse California are to:

  • Work collaboratively amongst the membership on issues of common interest including increasing the amount of recycled water used in the region which will help reduce the region’s reliance on imported water;
  • Promote the safe introduction and use of recycled water through the education of users and non-users by demonstrating its value to the region and by showing how it is a safe and reliable supply of non-potable water;
  • Share and disseminate information among the membership so they are current on issues and able to provide input on topics of interest;
  • Discuss and provide input on legislative and regulatory issues that affect our agencies, the region, and the state;
  • Facilitate the development of technology aimed at improving water recycling;
  • Work on projects of shared interest that can increase the use of recycled water and/or make the education and training aspects of our programs more efficient and effective; and
  • Increase public awareness and understanding of related water problems and solution.
