The District provides water to 350,000 residents & 500,000 daytime users – 20% of Orange County. There are three treatment plants in the District. Our water comes from several sources: Colorado River, State Water Program, local supplies and recycled water. In 1990, 64% of our water was imported. Today, only 27% is. In terms of recycled water, over 21,000 acre feet per year is used in the District, transported through “Irvine Purple” pipes. Melinda is head of water quality in the District. She reported that the quality of tap water is very high – and is held to standards higher than those that regulate bottled water. There are seven chemists and several micro- biologists who oversee water quality in the District. Over ¼ million lab tests are done every year through her lab. IRWD publishes an Annual Water Quality Report each June. Cheryl then reported that billing is being processed through a tiered rate system; customers are billed according to their usage category. - Bill Zeller, Reporter
