Lake Mission Viejo APW Project Recognized by ACC-OC

Lake Mission Viejo APW OCC-OC Award

Lake Mission Viejo Advanced Purified Water Project Honored by ACC-OC

The Association of California Cities - Orange County recognized the Lake Mission Viejo Advanced Purified Water Project last evening at the 5th Annual Golden Hub of Innovation Awards. Congratulations to our partners: City of Mission Viejo and Lake Mission Viejo Association.

Lake Mission Viejo will switch to advanced purified water for lake refill this summer and end nearly 40 years of using potable (drinking) water to maintain water levels in the 124-acre lake. The project will eliminate up to 350 acre-feet of potable demand – more than 114 million gallons of drinking water – currently used to fill the lake.
