Orange County Water District

Who We Are

One component of the District is its commitment to public education. This is done through facility tours, speaking engagements, O.C. Water Hero program and Children's Water Education Festival. The Festival is a two-day event held every March at UCI. Its mission is to educate elementary school students about water and the environment, and to encourage them to make blue and green choices now and in the future.
