Turf Transformation Program Recognized For Helping Customers Save Money

Moulton Niguel’s Turf Transformation Program was recognized by the Orange County Business Council for creating environmental sustainability and helping customers save money. We’re honored to be recognized by the OCBC and thank all our customers who have participated in this great, water-saving program!

Since 2011, the District has provided rebates to customers that replace grass with drought-tolerant plants and landscaping. More than 2,500 customers have participated in the program, replacing more than 5 million square feet of turf and resulting in 500 million gallons of water savings. Our rebate program has allowed us to transform our community’s residential landscapes, golf courses, parks, medians and much more from high water use turf to efficient landscapes while helping our customers save water and money.

Providing Free Irrigation Training to Landscapers

Moulton Niguel partnered with the Bilingual Training Institute this fall to provide a free irrigation training program for Spanish-speaking landscapers working in south Orange County. The irrigation training program, which began in September, covered a variety of water management topics, including troubleshooting for common irrigation issues, drip irrigation, smart controller programming, and, sustainable water management principles.

In October, we held our last bilingual irrigation training class for the series but are excited to host more in the future. Thanks to all the landscapers who participated in our program and for your continued efforts in maintaining water-efficient practices!

Water Reliability Forum: The State of Water Supply and Impact on South Orange County

With very limited access to local groundwater, our region faces unique water challenges. To better understand how we are preparing for reliability now, and for years to come, Moulton Niguel hosted a water forum with top community, business, and water leaders to discuss how public agencies and the private sector can work together to ensure south Orange County continues to have a reliable water supply.

Officials from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Building Industry Association of Southern California, and the California Department of Water Resources discussed how many local and statewide agencies are continuing to implement innovative initiatives to plan for a resilient water future.

Join the Conversation: As we plan for future water forums, we welcome our community’s participation in the dialogue! If you’re interested in attending a future event, please email outreach@mnwd.com.

Customer Appreciation Event: Celebrating 50 Years of Water Recycling

We are very excited to celebrate an incredible milestone this year: 50 years of water recycling at Moulton Niguel Water District! This major achievement could not have been accomplished without our incredible customers and partners who have contributed to the success of our recycled water program. Recycled water, today, meets approximately 25% of the district’s water demands, reduces our dependence on imported water, and further improves water supply reliability for our customers and communities.
