Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD) Manager of Recycled Water Mark Tettemer provided details on the organization’s Water Recycling Program to business and community leaders during the May 2 Government Affairs Committee meeting.

Tettemer discussed IRWD’s recycled water legacy and system, which began in 1967 and has recycled one billion gallons of water per year since. As a reliable water supply is important to the business community, the reclamation program is an increasingly relevant part of the IRWD’s water portfolio in helping to meet the water needs of its service area.

Water recycled by IRWD is used in landscape and agricultural irrigation in local parks, medians, golf courses, and community association properties, and for the ice rinks at the recently completed Great Park Ice facility at the Orange County Great Park.

Legislative status reports were also presented during the meeting by representatives from the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein, Congresswoman Katie Porter, and State Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris.
