Community Members Learn About Their Water Supply at WVWD Open House by Jillian Keller Jan 14, 2020 Member Submitted News WALNUT – On Saturday, January 11 community members from Diamond Bar, Walnut, West Covina, Rowland Heights, and Pomona attended Walnut Valley Water District’s (WVWD) Open House at District headquarters. The open house offered attendees a wide span of free resources and information ranging from the benefits of recycled water to current and upcoming infrastructure projects, customer service updates, tips to conserve water at home, and more. Activities included a kids’ “Water is Life” corner, interactive demonstrations, Lunar New Year crafts, and family-friendly games. Event highlights included a freeze machine demonstration and a backhoe photo booth. “The District’s Open House was a huge success! I can’t think of a better way to kick-off 2020 than inviting the community to the place our water family calls home,” said WVWD Board President, Theresa Lee. “We are so excited that members of our community, of all ages, came to learn more about the District and their water supply. Community engagement and outreach with our customers is a District priority and our Open House is one of the many ways the District works to connect and build lasting relationships.” WVWD’s Open House provided community members with an opportunity to learn more about the innovation and technology used by employees in various departments to provide them with safe and reliable drinking water. WVWD’s Operations Department provided a hands-on meter connection display which showed customers how water travels from the District’s pipes to customers’ homes and businesses. Other displays included a “How to Read Your Water Meter” booth, where your water comes from artwork, emergency response equipment tour, and much more. This event was offered free to the community and is one of the many ways WVWD aims to educate the community in a fun and engaging atmosphere.
