H2O for HOAs Educational Event

The City of Laguna Niguel partners with the neighboring Cities of south Orange County as well as Water Districts in the region to provide FREE events called “H2O for HOAs”.

These educational events are designed for the Home Owners Associations (HOA) board members, community managers, and professional landscapers.

Educational presentations and exhibits inform participants of the opportunities for saving water and eliminating irrigation and urban runoff, as well as the best practices and techniques available to the HOAs for compliance with the State mandatory regulations on protecting water quality. The event’s programs also include practical how-to discussions, exhibitor booths, information on program and project implementation, rebates, and water management tools.
