As Well!

The Association is grateful to
Irvine Ranch Water District
for its generous donation
of the site for our event.

Without IRWD's support
our event would not be possible.

Irvine Ranch Water District makes its facilities available
for use by residents and non-profit organizations merely as a public service,
but does not, by allowing this use, endorse or support the purpose of the event or its sponsor.

Our annual OPERATOR EXPO provides a great opportunity for quality continuing education and a chance to gather information on new products and learn more about current technologies directly from the experts. It's also an excellent networking opportunity.

This Specialized CE Training and Vendor Exhibition ranks among OCWA’s Premier Events, and the Pipe Tapping Competition and Horseshoe Tournament are a great way to build teamwork, meet others in the industry, and maybe win bragging rights for the next year.
