About Our Presentation

South Orange County relies heavily on uncertain imported water from the Colorado River and Northern California. To address ongoing water supply challenges, Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) is exploring opportunities to maximize wastewater and stormwater use.

MNWD is actively seeking interagency partnerships to enhance water supply and climate resilience, benefiting the community by improving watershed health.

Our presentation will focus on MNWD’s OASIS Water Resources Center project, emphasizing data-driven partnerships and its potential to provide customers with a drought-resistant, new local water supply. This initiative aims to increase operational flexibility, reduce dependence on imported water, and minimize urban runoff and treated wastewater discharges to Aliso Creek and the ocean.

You'll not want to miss this presentation, for though its focus is local the implications of its success will be felt throughout the water community.

Make plans now to attend this informative Industry Insight on Wednesday, February 21.
