The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) hosted a tour of its Lloyd W. Michael Water Treatment Plant on Thursday, September 19, 2019. CVWD welcomed over 80 attendees including customers, business owners, and college students, eager to learn about the careful steps CVWD takes to ensure a high quality, safe, and reliable water supply. In addition to learning about the water treatment process, attendees gained a better understanding of all district services and how CVWD is investing in the community to meet the water needs now and for years to come.
The event began at CVWD’s Environmental Learning Center where 1,500 students visit every year to learn about our precious water resource. Attendees celebrated the history of the district and its 30th anniversary of the Lloyd W. Michael Water Treatment Plant, which was completed in 1989. Once the tour started, CVWD treatment plant operators guided the group of attendees to see first-hand the extensive process water must go through before being delivered to their homes and businesses.
“CVWD is committed to educating the community about the many steps we take to ensure our water is safe and clean 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” commented CVWD General Manager/CEO John Bosler. “Seeing the treatment process firsthand is a unique experience that leaves a lasting impression, and we are grateful that so many of our customers spent the evening with us to engage and learn more about their water and wastewater provider.”
CVWD encourages its customers to learn more about their water supply and district services throughout the year by participating in the educational programs, workshops, and tours they offer. For more information about district activities, visit CVWDwater.com or call (909)987-2591.
