Resident Tours

IRWD Operations Center
3512 Michelson Dr.
Irvine, CA

Have you ever wondered how the water from your tap gets there? Or what makes that water safe to drink? IRWD hosts tours each year for those who live or work within IRWD boundaries. Tours are hosted by an IRWD board member and are designed to give residents an opportunity to learn more about IRWD, encourage an open dialogue, and to answer questions regarding the District. IRWD Tours offer customers a chance to view our facilities from behind the scenes to learn how our water systems work, meet and greet your IRWD Board Representative, understand your water supply, and become a more efficient water user.

Resident tours are not open to those who have participated in an IRWD resident tour in the last three years.
