Abstract: California.s water supply is becoming increasingly unreliable, and investments to make water more reliable must be seriously investigated. In this arid region of Southern California, reclaimed water is the only new source on the horizon. The Orange County Water District, together with the County Sanitation Districts of Orange County, are exploring the feasibility of building a water reclamation project that would produce up to 123 million m³/year (100,000 afy) of highly treated wastewater, using the latest and most advanced technological processes available.
