Efforts to develop a system to purify waste water and use it to replenish Orange County's underground water basin recently received $500,000 in funding from legislation signed by President Clinton. The Groundwater Replenishment System, to be located in Fountain Valley and run jointly by the county water and sanitation districts, is expected to cost between $350 million and $400 million to complete by 2020. The system will take treated waste water, which is normally released into the ocean, and purify it using a variety of techniques.
