Free event showcases water reliability, conservation and treatment through interactive displays
LAKE ELSINORE, CA. —EVMWD’s annual Splash into Spring event will take place Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the EVMWD headquarters located at 31315 Chaney Street in Lake Elsinore. The Annual Community Water Festival is a FREE family event where attendees will learn about the process EVMWD uses to treat more than 5.5 million gallons of sewer water per day, the construction and maintenance of more than 700 miles of pipeline throughout the EVMWD service area, and saving money and water with a more water efficient home and landscape.
Attendees will get a peek into the daily work at the District through a variety of demonstrations and interactive displays. Activities include a virtual tour of the Colorado River Aqueduct, fixing a leaky water main, performing a valve exercise, cleaning up a polluted watershed, and exploring pipes with robotics and video cameras.
Visitors can also take a tour of the facility’s sewer treatment plant, to see how wastewater becomes recycled water. Landscape and irrigation experts, UCCE Riverside County Master Gardeners, local nurseries, and home improvement stores will be available to answer questions about outdoor irrigation, California friendly plants, gardening, and water-saving appliances and devices.
