What an amazing day spent learning all about our water, from how it’s reclaimed to how the Coast Guard responds to emergencies on the water! The tour of the Irvine Ranch Water District was especially enlightening as we got to learn, and see and smell for ourselves, precisely how our waste water goes from our morning showers to the evening golf courses. Another highlight was the Coast Guard facility tour, we learned about how they respond to calls, monitor for weather conditions, and keep the area safe. All kinds of crises occur here, but this hardworking team also had some stories that made us laugh. The best part was that we got an inside look at the boats they use in emergencies! They were AWESOME! The day ended with a harbor cruise, and it couldn’t have been more perfect.
