Rep. Loretta Sanchez Introduces Groundwater Replenishment System Legislation

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47)announced that she has introduced a bill to help improve Orange County’s access to clean, reliable sources of water. H.R. 5039 would authorize $26 million in federal funding for the expansion of the Orange County Water District’s Groundwater Replenishment System (GWRS). The largest water purification project of its kind in the world, the GWRS takes highly treated wastewater and purifies it to levels that meet state and federal drinking water standards.
