Cal Water’s Kern River Valley District reaffirmed its commitment to improving the communities it serves in 2017 by donating $3,600 to local charitable organizations and investing $671,065 dollars in infrastructure improvement projects.
This year, the Kern River Valley District helped non-profits provide services to community members by donating to the Kern Valley Hospital Foundation, Chamber of Commerce, and the Exchange Club of Kern River Valley. The funds were donated as part of the utility’s philanthropic giving program and not paid for by ratepayers.
In 2017, the Kern River Valley District replaced 1600 feet of water main and repainted a storage tank. The new water main will help improve system reliability and the new paint will prolong the useful life of the tank.
"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.
