Cal Water’s Westlake District reaffirmed its commitment to improving the communities it serves in 2017 by donating $13,700 to local charitable organizations and investing $2,057,900 dollars in infrastructure improvement projects.
This year, the Westlake District helped non-profits provide vital services to community members in need by donating to Manna Conejo Valley Food Bank, Food Share of Ventura County, Anglers Anonymous of America, Senior Concerns/Meals on Wheels, and other organizations. The funds were donated as part of the utility’s philanthropic giving program and not paid for by ratepayers. In addition to providing monetary contributions, Westlake District employees also prepared lunches for the homeless through Lutheran Social Services.
"We are glad to partner with these important organizations, which provide such essential services to our community," said District Manager Doug Varney. "California Water Service values being able to give back to help improve the quality of life in the communities we serve."
In 2017, the Westlake District also installed more than 5,000 feet of new water mains to ensure system reliability and 2,400 feet of water mains to bring recycled water to Triunfo Park, in an effort to conserve potable water.
"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 Varney.
