Cal Water’s Redwood Valley District reaffirmed its commitment to improving the communities it serves in 2017 by donating $11,000 to local charitable organizations and investing $158,000 dollars in infrastructure improvement projects.
This year, the Redwood Valley District helped non-profits provide vital services to community members in need by donating to Lucerne Alpine Senior Center, Redwood Empire Food Bank, West County Community Services, and North Bay Fire Relief Effort. 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 Local Manager Darin McCosker. “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 commenced in 2017, the Redwood Valley District installed 5,800 feet of new 6-inch water main and new fire hydrants to improve water system reliability and fire protection for customers on Freezeout Road in Duncans Mills, Calif.
“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 McCosker.
