The Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD) is located in the south-central portion of Orange County consisting of approximately 76,000 acres. The most extensive reclaimed water project in California for urban landscape irrigation is operated by the IRWD. A special source of water used for irrigation and other purposes, reclaimed water is an integral part of IRWD's Total Water Management System. Wastewater from the community is collected and treated at the Michelson Water Reclamation Plant (MWRP). The effluent meets California regulation Title 22 standards for spray irrigation of food crops and landscape irrigation of parks and playgrounds.
