Leadership Tomorrow welcomes the Class of ’18 on Thurs, October 19th with a behind the scenes tour of how Orange County gets, conserves and recycles our water. The day begins at the Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD), where the class takes a tour of the facility and sees how Irvine recycles over 14 million gallons of water per day. There are also presentations from some of the state’s leading experts on the pending water issues in California and Orange County.
The class then travels to the Fountain Valley Ground Water Replenishment System Facility, that is a state-of-the-art water purification project that can produce up to 100 million gallons of high-quality water every day. During lunch at the new Marina Park in Newport Beach, the class will have the chance to tour the brand new facility and eat lunch on the patio overlooking the Newport Harbor. The Benjamin M Carlson Lifeguard Headquarters is next on the agenda, where the class will receive a tour headquarters and the Ben Carlson memorial statue.
Finally, the day ends with a relaxing harbor cruise where the class has an opportunity to get to know each other better, create lasting relationships and discuss ideas for their upcoming class project.
