The Water Management Headquarters of Orange County, California is located at 18700 Ward Street, Fountain Valley, CA 92708. It is the headquarters of the Orange County Water District (OCWD), which is a special district that manages the groundwater basin beneath central and northern Orange County.
The building was designed by the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and was completed in 1993. It is a 10-story, 180,000 square foot building. The building is made of concrete, glass, and steel.
The building has a number of sustainable features, including a green roof, rainwater harvesting, and solar panels. The green roof helps to insulate the building and reduce energy costs. The rainwater harvesting system collects rainwater from the roof and uses it to irrigate the landscape. The solar panels generate electricity to power the building.
The building is also home to the OCWD’s Water Resource Education Center, which offers educational programs about water conservation and management.
The Water Management Headquarters of Orange County is a modern and sustainable building that is home to the OCWD, a vital organization that manages the water supply for 2.5 million Orange County residents.
