Antelope Valley Invests in Infrastructure and Charities

Cal Water’s Antelope Valley District reaffirmed its commitment to improving the communities it serves in 2017 by donating $1,500 to local charitable organizations and investing $379,854 in infrastructure improvement projects.

This year, the Antelope Valley District helped non-profits provide services to community members by donating to the Lake Hughes Community Center, West Antelope Valley Historical Society, and Leona Valley Improvement Association. The funds were donated as part of the utility’s philanthropic giving program and not paid for by ratepayers.

In 2017, the Antelope Valley District replaced 1,500 feet of aging water mains and installed three fire hydrants. These infrastructure upgrades will improve water system reliability and fire-fighting capabilities. An additional 1,440 feet of mains and four hydrant replacements are expected to be completed in early 2018.

“Our promise to our customers is to provide them with quality, service, and value. By investing in our infrastructure, we can ensure our customers continue to receive a reliable, high-quality water supply around the clock and that this promise is fulfilled for generations to come,” said Local Manager Chris Whitley.
