Taking Pride in the Past, Preparing for the Future

Since its beginning in 1933, the Orange County Water District has grown far more extensively and rapidly than its founders could possibly have anticipated. Throughout the decades, the District has developed and introduced new technologies to manage water supplies, and is now a world leader in groundwater recharge.

OCWD Honored with Platinum Award by Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies

The Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies presented the Orange County Water District with the prestigious Platinum Award for Utility Excellence. The award is given to agencies that demonstrate a strong record of effective utility management and a significant contribution to the drinking water industry.

Upcoming Agendized Meetings

OCWD provides water to 19 cities and water agencies in north and central Orange County. For more information about your water bill and service, please contact your local water supplier.
