IRWD's Current and Future Projects
The Irvine Ranch Water District was established in 1961 with the goal to provide drinking water, collect waste water and produce recycled water to the local community. Over the years, the organization has initiated and implemented many projects and initiatives:
The organization’s efforts to treat waste water through its Michelson Water Recycling Plant (MWRP) have so far resulted in excellent quality of water that is being geared towards usage for landscape and agricultural irrigation in addition to meeting industrial and commercial needs.
IRWD’s goal is to expand on its MWRP efforts in order to meet the projected 56% increased recycled water by the year of 2025. To learn more, please click here.
IRWD had demolished the under-producing and deteriorating well at the Orange Park Acres Service Area (previously known at Orange Park Acres Mutual Water Company). The organization is planning to drill a new well on the same site located on North Gravier in the city of Orange. As this project is moving forward, the latest update on the IRWD website reads: “The contractor and staff held a pre-mobilization meeting to discuss staging of equipment on site. Mobilization should take place next week.” Read More.
Based on the IRWD website, Well 115 was decommissioned in 2011 is located along the I-5 Freeway in the west corner of the parking lot at 250 Commerce. This well requires replacement. As of February 3rd, contractors have started to relocate the post indicator valve adjacent to the well as OCFA had performed inspection of the relocated valve. The relocation of the valve will be completed in the coming weeks. To learn more, click here.
