1 Sustainable Water Programs for Aliso Viejo California Karine Parry Oregon State University MNR 511 Week 1 September 30, 2018 Providing clean drinking water for the City of Aliso Viejo ’s residents is both a sustainable and economic necessity. By utilizing regulations established by both state and federal legislation, water treatment plants can implement tests that locate unregulated chemicals in the water supply. Drinking water quality testing programs are established to ensure that healthy drinking water is supplied to residents in the local area. (Moulton Niguel Water District 2017, 2- 3) Implementing safe, quality and effective water treatment programs is essential to sustainable development. Sources for clean drinking water come from rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. (Moulton Niguel Water District 2017, 3) The United States Environmental Protection Agency and Digestive Disease Week establish regulations that water treatment plants must abide by, prior to providing the sustainable resource to residents. The regulations establish a safe level of trace contaminant elements permitted in drinking water. The water treatment plants then supply drinkable water to households and businesses from the Diemer Treatment Plant in Yorba Linda and Baker Water Treatment Plant in Lake Forest, which is then delivered to the Moulton Niguel Water District. (Moulton Niguel Water District 2017, 3) Drinkable water is a natural resource that is very important to local ecosystems, as well as to the community, because flora, animal species and human populations cannot survive healthily without safe, clean, drinking water. For a system to be sustainable, it must serve consumption and production objectives that are themselves sustainable ” (H arris 2000, 14), and if preferences and technologies are not sustainable, then the system will be unstable. (Harris 2000, 14)
