Laguna's Excellent Water Quality
8/24/2015  The County of Orange is now producing their water quality report on a triennial basis. The July 2015 edition of the Orange County Health Care Agency’s Triennial Ocean, Harbor & Bay Water Quality Report was recently released. Seven locations along the City's coastline are monitored at least once a week. Since 2005, the City’s success rate for compliance with AB411 standards has averaged 98.9% (recreational water standards analyzed between April 1 - October 31). The City’s success is achieved by the maintenance and operation of the sewer collection system, dry-season urban water diversion units, street sweeping, and the beach cleaning operations.

Firefighters Return Home

The personnel are part of a “strike team” consisting of five fire engines from other fire departments in Orange County.
