Project: Irvine Ranch WD- Lake Pipeline Conversion Project

Description: The Irvine Lake Pipeline (ILP) Conversion Project will conserve approximately 3,156 acre-feet per year (AFY) of imported water by extending Irvine Ranch Water District's (IRWD's) recycled water system, offsetting imported water demands and reducing evaporation losses at Irvine Lake. The existing ILP delivers imported water purchased from Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) to Irvine Lake and conveys it to irrigation sites. IRWD will construct a new booster pump station, storage tank reservoir, and convert a portion of the ILP to serve recycled water to irrigation customers. Extending IRWD's recycled water system to serve these customers will reduce dependency on imported water.
