Six organizations receive ‘One Water’ awards from MWD

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) presented awards to six organizations for their large-scale water-efficiency projects that MWD says will save more than 1 billion gallons of water over the next decade.

“The transformation of daily operations for these organizations translates into long-term, sustainable change for entire communities,” said MWD General Manager Adel Hagekhalil.

The following projects were presented with One Water Awards:

  • City of Chino Public Works Department for installation of wireless soil moisture sensor systems at all city parks.
  • City of Huntington Beach Public Works Department for installing a recirculation system to save water during fire hydrant flushing.
  • Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation, Arboretum & Botanic Garden for their efficient irrigation system to maintain existing California native plant collections.
  • Rice Canyon Ranch for their efficient irrigation system, high-density planting to save water during avocado-growing operations.
  • Ventura County Fire Department for their mobile water recirculating system to reduce water waste during firefighting training exercises.
  • Victoria Village Homeowner Association for installing a wireless soil moisture sensor system for common areas throughout their HOA community.

Since 1990, MWD has invested nearly $1 billion in conservation programs, saving about 3.5 million acre-feet of water.
