August 19, 2022Celebrating 70 Years of Service!
The District is celebrating 70 years of service to our customers! The staff, District Engineers, District Attorney and Commissioner Materi enjoyed a tour of the Cedar River Watershed, lunch and fun filled water related team building activities on August 18th in recognition of this milestone. Everyone appreciated the opportunity to learn more about where our water comes from and how it is delivered to the consumer. We are so lucky to have such valuable resources here in the Pacific Northwest and it is important to conserve water whenever possible.

We began our day at the Education Center where we learned about the history of the watershed and the journey our water takes from start to finish.
Next, we traveled to view Cedar Falls. The group was able to take a path down to a platform where we were able to enjoy spectacular views of the Falls.
We then traveled to the dam and our guide shared information about the different wildlife found in the Watershed.
Our team returned to the office to take part in a company lunch and team building ativities with plenty of laughter and fun competition!
Pass the ball with the Plunger...harder than it looks!
Pass the Plate of Water Over the Head to fill the Dish...Water Everywhere!

September 22, 2022It's Salmon SEEson!
Each Fall, salmon make a long, remarkable trek to spawn in streams and rivers across the Puget Sound region. You can find virtual viewing opportunities and educational resources on the Salmon SEEson website: SalmonSEEson.
We share our drinking water supply with salmon, trout and other fish. It's particularly important to conserve water in the summer and fall months when streamflows are naturally low and adult salmon are returning to rivers to spawn.
Salmon have a challenging journey; please be fish-friendly and use water wisely. For tips and tools to reduce water use, visit the Saving Water Partnership
