IRWD Graffitt Hotline:  949-453-5535

Here at IRWD we strive to have a zero tolerance for grafitti. Our goal is to remove graffiti from any IRWD owned property or facility within 24-48 hours of being reported. IRWD public property includes such things as reservoirs, pump stations, manhole covers and associated buildings and fences.

Tips when calling the IRWD Graffiti Hotline:

  • Give us the location of the graffiti - street, intersection and address, if possible.

  • Give us a description of the type of surface the graffiti is on - a block wall, pipe, fence, etc.

  • Give us a description of the type of graffiti - is it spray paint, magic marker, etching?

  • Give us your name and phone number so we can call you back if the crew is unable to locate the graffiti or has followup questions.
