Cal Water Celebrates Water Awareness Month With Family-Friendly Festival

Cal Water’s Selma District hosted a Water Awareness Festival this week, where more than 200 customers came to Lincoln Park Plaza to learn about their water system and enjoy afternoon festivities. Selma City Councilmembers Scott Robertson and Louis Franco, City Manager David Elias, Chief of Police Greg Garner, Fire Chief Mike Cain, City Clerk Reyna Rivera, City Planner Bryant Hemby, and Director of Recreation and Community Services Mikal Kirchner were also in attendance to mingle with local residents.

At the festival, attendees were able to interact with representatives from the utility’s engineering, water quality, customer service, operations, and conservation departments and learn more about their water utility service. Customers were also honored for their commitment to using water wisely during the drought. Attendees were treated to performances by the Selma High School Folklorico Dancers, had their faces painted, and interacted with the Selma Fire and Police Departments.

“May is Water Awareness Month, so every year we try to take this opportunity to invite our local customers to learn more about their water system and get to know our Selma team, the people who work day in and day out to ensure our customers have reliable, high-quality water service,” said Local Manager Steve Johnson. “This year, we also wanted to give a special thank you to our customers for their efforts during the drought emergency. Thanks to their efforts, we reduced almost 40% of our water use collectively here in Selma.”
