Orange County Water District (OCWD) manages the groundwater basin under north & central Orange County that supplies water to more than 20 cities & water agencies, serving over 2.3 million residents. OCWD was formed in 1933 by a special act of the California State Legislature to protect Orange County's rights to water in the Santa Ana River and to manage this important groundwater basin. OCWD has grown far more extensively and rapidly than its founders could possibly have anticipated in 1933. Land has been annexed through the years, as local water agencies have expanded service areas. OCWD now covers well over 200,000 acres and serves a population of more than 2.4 million. And, whereas 86 percent of groundwater in 1933 was pumped for agricultural irrigation, today less than 4 percent is used on the county's disappearing farmland. Orange County of today barely resembles that of 1933. The problems of the early days, enormous for then, appear minor by comparison with those of today. With new technologies at our fingertips, exciting research opening doors almost daily, and with a public more aware than ever of the need to conserve, we can look to the future with confidence.
