ACWA Launches “California H2O: Flowing For the Future” Video Series to Promote California Water Industry by Heather Engel Dec 7, 2018 Water News ACWA has developed the first three episodes of a new educational video series to help member agencies inform their customers, elected officials, and key stakeholders about critical water issues. “California H2O: Flowing For the Future” officially debuted last week at ACWA’s Fall Conference & Exhibition in San Diego. The videos offer a statewide perspective on important water issues and feature interviews with member agencies to highlight the innovation and collaboration of local agencies. “These videos are targeted to today’s typical audience by being short, visually engaging and presented in a way that’s easy to understand,” said Executive Director Dave Eggerton. “I think they will be a great tool for member agencies to use in educating the public about important water issues.” ACWA hired J Comm, Inc. to produce the educational video series in coordination with the Communications Department. The series will eventually comprise 10 episodes. ACWA member agencies are encouraged to either download the videos from ACWA’s website or link to them at www.acwa.com/H2OVIDEO. The full-length videos are approximately five minutes long. Shorter versions are also available for promotional purposes and as social media teasers. The first three episodes, now available for download, are described below. “Saving For a Dry Day” explores the ongoing efforts to increase water storage throughout the state and better measure and map California’s biggest reservoir, the Sierra snowpack. “A Safe Supply” looks at local efforts to forge collaborations and use state-of-the-art water treatment technology to ensure delivered water is safe to drink. “Tractors and Tech” showcases the increasingly sophisticated measures used to improve the efficiency of agricultural irrigation.
