Document Description
The IRWD South Orange County (SOC) Interconnect Project would convey excess supply within IRWD's water system to SOC water agencies in the event of a planned or emergency outage of imported water supplies. No new water supply would need to be developed in order to implement this project. The proposed project consists of construction of a permanent pump facility at IRWD's Zone 1 Reservoir in the City of Irvine; modifications to IRWD's Zone 3-4 Booster Pump Station located in the City of Irvine along with piping modifications in the cities of Irvine and Lake Forest; and construction of approximately 7,400 linear feet of interconnect pipeline within the cities of Irvine and Lake Forest to the South County Pump Station located in Lake Forest.
