Oroville Invests $170,000 in Infrastructure and Charities

Cal Water’s Oroville District reaffirmed its commitment to improving the communities it serves in 2017 by donating $27,000 to local charitable organizations and investing $2,351,556 dollars in infrastructure improvement projects.

This year, the Oroville District helped non-profits provide vital services to community members in need by donating to the Hope Center, Salvation Army, Oroville Rescue Mission, YMCA of Oroville, Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley, and other local organizations. The funds were donated as part of the utility’s philanthropic giving program and not paid for by ratepayers.

“We are glad to partner with these important organizations, which provide such essential services to our community,” said District Manager George Barber. “California Water Service values being able to give back to help improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.”

Among the infrastructure improvement projects that were finished in 2017, the Oroville District upgraded the district’s treatment plant and installed new water mains to ensure the water supply meets all state and federal water quality standards, and that service remains reliable.

“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 Barber.
