Each Fall, Upper District partners with the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation to host WaterFest. WaterFest is a community outreach event focused on educating residents on water conservation and environmental stewardship. WaterFest hosts over 50 exhibitor booths focused on water sustainability and environmental stewardship to educate and entertain residents of all ages. The event also hosts food trucks, raffle prizes, activities and giveaways. Waterfest additionally consists of cheer competition for the LA County Parks and Recreation Department’s cheerleading teams. This year, again over 500 cheerleaders participated and each team had one minute to perform a water conservation-themed cheer. The top three teams received a 2017 WaterFest trophy.
Here are a few pictures from this year’s WATERFEST 2017!
Water 101: Informing Community Leaders
Upper District’s Water 101 educational forum is hosted in partnership with the San Gabriel Basin Water Quality Authority and the Main San Gabriel Basin Wastermaster. Water 101 serves as a water-focused educational series for local elected officials, city managers, public works directors, community leaders and city/legislative staff within the San Gabriel Valley.
The educational series is a conference style program focusing on topics highlighting the history of the San Gabriel Valley Watershed, agencies providing our regional water supply, current water supply and outlook, integrated approaches to water sustainability, water quality, current water legislation and policy, and an overview of existing conservation programs. For a further look into the program, please scroll through the 2017 Water 101 Resource Guide
Water 101 also consists of a San Gabriel Valley water supply solutions tour which highlights regional facilities and infrastructure, current projects, and an overview of San Gabriel Valley water infrastructure. Please visit our “Take a Tour” page for more information.
