Director - Orange County Sanitation District
The Orange County Sanitation District operates the third largest wastewater agency west of the Mississippi River. For over 50 years, we have safely collected, treated and disposed of and or reclaimed the wastewater generated by 2.5 million people living and working in central and northwestern Orange County.
Each day we treat approximately 230 million gallons of wastewater enough water to fill Angels stadium nearly three times each day. About 80 percent of the wastewater comes from homes – sinks, toilets, showers, laundry, and dishwashers. The rest comes from businesses – retail stores, restaurants, manufactures, hotels, offices, and other industries.
A professional staff of more than 600 employees manages the day-to-day activities of OCSD. OCSD facilities include 580 miles of sewer pipes that snake throughout the county and two treatment plants – one in Fountain Valley and the other in Huntington Beach – where wastewater is treated in accordance with strict state and federal standards 24 hours-a-day.
Our employees are on duty protecting your health and safety by making sure the sewer system efficiently operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. We are very proud of the job we do and take pride in providing our customers with quality service.
