Did you know that OCSD is a Special District governed by the Health and Safety Code Section 4730.65 and is designated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as critical infrastructure and essential service.  Functioning critical infrastructure and critical government services are imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both the public health and safety of Orange County and the State of California. Sixteen federal critical infrastructure sectors have been identified as being exempt from the order, with Water and Wastewater Systems being one of the sectors. OCSD falls within this classification and OCSD must continue to operate during the COVID-19 situation.

Our personnel is working diligently to make sure OCSD continues to operate with the highest level of service.
