Santa Clara Valley Water District Debuts New Video

SAN JOSE -- The Santa Clara Valley Water District has launched a new video called "Protecting Your Future." 

From the early 20th century farmers through the growth of Silicon Valley, to the challenges facing us in the future, the video describes the water supply, flood protection and watershed stewardship services essential to our economic vitality and quality of life in Santa Clara County. It includes historical footage and interviews with local community and business leaders, residents and water district staff.
