Many Districts and Agencies support the day-to-day functioning in Rossmoor.
Here’s another example, introducing the Orange County Water District (OCWD).
Founded more than 90 years ago, the District’s critical job is to keep a watchful eye on our Orange County Groundwater Basin. This crucial resource is critical to all county residents. The basin spans more than 300 miles and provides approximately 85 percent of the water supply to more than 2.5 million residents in north and central Orange County.
The OCWD is an internationally recognized leader in the water industry and its international reach is growing. OCWD takes the limited water supply found in nature and supplements it to provide water for more than 2.5 million people in Orange County, California. Since 1933, when the California State Legislature formed it, OCWD has been entrusted to guard the region’s groundwater basin. OCWD manages and replenishes the basin, ensures water reliability and quality, prevents seawater intrusion, and protects Orange County’s rights to Santa Ana River water.
A 10-member board of directors governs the District and implements policies that foster sound management of the basin, as well as support the advancement of OCWD’s mission to provide an adequate, reliable, high-quality water supply at the lowest reasonable cost in an environmentally responsible manner.
Seven board members are elected and three are appointed by Anaheim, Fullerton and Santa Ana city councils. Explore their website and get to know the OCWD directors and all that the district does for us.
Rossmoor is part of OCWD District 4 along with Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and parts of Cypress.
