Evaluation of groundwater conveyance options

The Orange County Water District (OCWD; the District) and the Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) are seeking proposals from qualified consultants to provide a review, summary and analysis of conveyance options from the Orange County Groundwater Basin to South Orange County and, in particular, MNWD.

In general, the goal of this project is to evaluate the potential infrastructure and property acquisition required to convey water from the Orange County Groundwater Basin to Moulton Niguel Water District’s system. This information will be used by OCWD and MNWD to assist in the potential development of a pilot storage program whereby MNWD will compensate OCWD to store water in the OCWD groundwater basin and ultimately convey stored water to MNWD during emergencies or water shortage conditions.

Proposals are due Feb. 22, 2019 at 2 p.m.
