It is a privilege to serve as your representative on the Orange County Water District. For the past twelve years, I have worked to
ensure our precious water aquifer is replenished and maintained to the highest standard. I am a licensed Civil Engineer and have used
my training to scrutinize the technical and financial aspects of all water district operations. We are fortunate to have a very
dedicated and motivated staff that operate our facilities and deliver quality services to our water producers.
In January 2008, we opened a new water treatment facility called the Groundwater Replenishment System. This project is the largest
of it's kind in the world, and produces 70 million gallons a day of near distilled quality water. This is enough to serve 500,000
people every year. With the drought conditions in Southern California, this facility helps to alleviate overdrafting of the
groundwater basin. If you would like a tour of the facility in Fountain Valley, please contact me.
I thank you for the opportunity to serve.
