RIALTO, Calif. — West Valley Water District (WVWD) hosted its Annual Earth Day and Open House Celebration on Saturday, April 20, 2024. This annual event encourages Inland Empire residents to celebrate Earth Day and provides an opportunity for WVWD to engage and educate the community on local water resources, investment in infrastructure and the importance of taking care of the planet.  

Attendees had the opportunity to directly interact with WVWD departments through demonstrations and interactive displays showcasing the District’s commitment to high quality and reliable water, such as the Roemer Filtration Upgrade and Expansion Project which is currently under construction.  On-site water treatment tours led by plant operators were given to attendees to provide a deeper understanding of the water treatment process and appreciation of our water resources.

“This annual event gives WVWD the opportunity to personally connect with our community of all ages to expand understanding about the District and our diverse water resources, and to celebrate Earth Day together”, said Board President, Greg Young. “I also want to express my gratitude for all the local dignitaries and community partners who joined us this year.

Alongside the WVWD booths, several local agencies, businesses, and non-profits also hosted booths and provided community members with additional information and resources. Local dignitaries in attendance included: Supervisor Jesse Armendarez, Mayor Deborah Roberston, Mayor Acquanetta Warren and representatives from the offices of Assembly Majority Leader Eloise Gomez Reyes and Supervisor Joe Baca.

The WVWD 2024 Earth Day and Open House Event is a free community event made possible through the contributions of community and business sponsors. The 2024 Earth Day & Open House top sponsors included Chase Bank, Inland Empire Utilities Agency, and Supervisor Jesse Armendarez.
