Find Out More About Water Desalination

Interested in learning more about desalination? 

For more than 50 years, IRWD has made water supply reliability a top priority through the implementation of water efficient practices and programs and the development of cost effective alternative water supply resources.

In Orange county, locally desalinated water from brackish and ocean water sources continue to be evaluated as potential alternative water supplies. The desalination process converts water with high salts and mineral concentrations into drinking water or water for irrigation purposes. Water agencies that benefit from these potential regional desalination projects would be responsible for project funding.

IRWD has a web page dedicated to the topic, including an archive of documentation related to the proposed Seawater Desalination Project at Huntington Beach.

A recent op-ed by General Manager Paul Cook, published by the Orange County Register, explains the District’s position on the project.
