Speaker: Jennifer Cabral

Jennifer is the Senior Public Information Specialist in charge of community outreach for the Orange

County Department of Sanitation. She gave an informative presentation on waste water treatment

in Orange County. We found out that Orange County produces 207 million gallons of waste

water every day and the treatment plants turn out 100 million gallons of treated water daily; that's a lot of waste water. Much of the water once cleaned is used for irrigation of parks and golf courses and some is returned, once cleaned to the ocean. Some of the water is also returned to the aquifers and will eventually find its way back to our homes.


Correction; The Caborca Polio Trip will cost $225 plus the cost of hotel accommodation.

Not $125 as stated in last week's newsletter.


Next week: Shelly Wooley, Author.
