K-12 Students and Teachers Encouraged to Engage in Water Conservation Projects

Desafío H2OCal Water, in partnership with the California Association of Science Educators (CASE) and DoGoodery, today announced the launch and expansion of the seventh annual Cal Water H2O Challenge. The free, project-based competition invites fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade classrooms in Cal Water service areas to develop and implement solutions for local water issues. In light of the ongoing public health crisis, Cal Water has evolved its model this year to integrate distance learning for schools and students.

The revamped and expanded Cal Water H2O Challenge will build on best practices gleaned from the previous six years to engage more people in caring for water at a range of levels. In addition to the project-based challenge, the Cal Water H2O Challenge will now offer expert Teacher Ambassadors. With the new implementation of office hours, virtual meetings, an updated handbook, new video guides, and additional resources, Teacher Ambassadors and advisors have developed a clear pathway to engage students in real-world inquiry while helping reach curriculum goals. To date, more than 250 classrooms have participated in the program. For the second year in a row, the Classroom Challenge welcomes school-based clubs that are still being held to participate as well.

The classroom challenge will continue to ask students in grades 4-6 to identify a local water-based issue and work together to address their chosen issue through research and experiments over four to eight weeks. Understanding the hurdles of distance learning and the need for an equitable, fair competition, this year's Classroom Challenge will focus on designing solutions to care for water. Judges will not be seeking fully implemented projects, but rather looking for complete designs that have been tested and refined.

"The Cal Water H2O Challenge is an immersive experience for everyone involved; it gives students and educators the chance to view water conservation through a unique lens," said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Cal Water President and CEO. "We're pleased that, through this partnership with CASE and DoGoodery, we can continue to provide quality, service, and value to the communities we serve by engaging our future leaders-and often our best ambassadors-in the importance of water conservation and other water issues, even through a pandemic and with special school situations."

Camron King, CASE Executive Director, adds that the project allows students to enrich their science education while connecting with their community. "The Cal Water H2O Challenge is an incredible multi-disciplinary approach to providing students with hands-on, relevant science education. The Challenge provides the platform from which participating educators and students foster the connection of science and the world around them," King said. "CASE is appreciative of the partnership with Cal Water, as the project and our work align with the same goals and principles."

Due to the coronavirus, this year's winning classroom will receive $3,500 and an additional $1,000 college scholarship for each participating student. Runners-up receive a classroom grant and prizes for students and teachers, including an American Express gift card for each classroom.

Shawn McCarty and his sixth-grade students from Hoover Elementary (Stockton, Calif.) won first place in the 2020 Cal Water H2O Challenge for their project titled "Water Collectors: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse." McCarty's students wanted to find a solution for current and future droughts. Students tackled this issue by substituting water in pipelines with recycled rainwater harvested from self-designed water collectors. McCarty described the Challenge as having life-long effects in his students' daily lives. "With this project, we saw how easy it is to save, store, and recycle water. Several students said they would like to build rain collectors at their homes. I believe they are more likely now to recycle and reuse water in gardens than they were before."

Cal Water comenzó un importante proyecto de reemplazo de tubería principal en King City que mantendrá la infraestructura y el servicio de agua vitales del área de manera segura y confiable. La actualización garantizará que los clientes, incluidos los inquilinos de Town Square y otros residentes y negocios del centro, continúen teniendo el agua que necesitan para sus necesidades diarias y de emergencia.

The project, which will take approximately six weeks to complete, includes the installation of 1,400 feet of new 8-inch PVC water main and 65 individual customer service connections. Additionally, crews will replace aging fire hydrants to improve first responders' access to water. Installation will take place on Broadway Street, between Vanderhurst Avenue and 1st Street.

“As essential service workers, our crews are committed to delivering quality, service, and value to our King City customers,” said Local Manager Marc Bloom. “This infrastructure upgrade will enable us to continue to deliver a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water to businesses and government facilities in the area, both now and for years to come, and ensure first responders have the water they need to protect the community in an emergency.”

Crews are working to minimizing traffic delays and any other temporary inconvenience during construction, which is taking place Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect individual customer service connections to the new water main. Water service must be briefly interrupted as crews connect customer service connections to the main; however, Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. All streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction will be restored to as close to the previous condition as possible.

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has honored Cal Water and San Jose State University representatives with the Division Best Paper award in the Distribution and Plant Operations category for 2020. The award, virtually presented during AWWA's annual national conference, recognizes authors of papers from each AWWA Technical and Education Division published in AWWA Water Science that year.

The article titled "Spatiotemporal and Deterioration Assessment of Water Main Failures" focused on finding patterns in deteriorating mains. The paper's findings are expected to help water utilities make better-informed operational and strategic asset management decisions. In 2015, Cal Water and San Jose State University formed a partnership in which the entities would engage in joint water system and operations research, combining the skills and knowledge of academics and water industry professionals, according to Martin A. Kropelnicki, Cal Water President and CEO.

"We are proud of Cal Water Asset Manager Paul Yang's contributions to the team that took on this daunting task of discovering why water mains fail. Pipe disruptions can lead to water loss, service interruptions, environmental problems, property damage, and other concerns, so we are pleased to be able to offer our fellow water companies greater insight on causes behind the breaks," said Kropelnicki. "This award provides further validation of what can be accomplished through a public-private partnership, and we look forward to more collaboration to solve some of the water industry's most pressing challenges."

NoticiasCal Water comenzará la construcción de una planta de tratamiento que garantizará que los clientes y los bomberos de Montebello continúen teniendo un suministro de agua confiable que sea seguro para sus necesidades diarias y de emergencia. The new treatment facility will also eliminate perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) at a well that was turned offline in February 2020 due to the constituents reaching the water supply.

The well is a critical supply source and can provide 3.6 million gallons of water per day to area customers. The project is scheduled to begin in early 2021 and will take approximately four months to complete. The new plant will enable Cal Water's East Los Angeles District to return the well to service to support water use demand, ensure the water is safe and meets all regulations, and provide a local source of water at a lower cost than currently purchased surface water from its wholesale water supplier.

"Protecting our customers' health and safety is our highest priority. We have a rigorous water quality assurance program that ensures the water we deliver to customers complies with all standards set by public health experts," said District Manager James Crawford. "In this case, with the absence of a Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL), we proactively tested all of our water supply sources in service for PFOS and PFOA because we wanted to take action if it was needed to safeguard customers. Once the new treatment plant is completed, we will be able to return this critical water source to service to ensure we meet the needs of our customers and firefighters."

PFOS and PFOA are manmade compounds that have been historically used to make carpets, fabrics, food paper packaging, and other materials resistant to water, grease, or stains. They are also used for firefighting at airfields and a number of industrial processes. Cal Water has filed a lawsuit to hold the manufacturers of the compounds responsible and prevent its customers from having to bear the costs of treatment. While there is no state or federal MCL yet for PFOS or PFOA, Cal Water has proactively tested all of its water sources across the company.

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued its decision yesterday on the 2018 General Rate Case and Infrastructure Improvement Plan for California Water Service (Cal Water), the largest subsidiary of California Water Service Group (NYSE: CWT). The decision marks the end of an extensive review of the utility's water system improvement plans, costs, and rates.

The decision by the CPUC, the governmental body responsible for providing independent oversight and setting water rates that reflect the actual costs of providing service, adopts the proposed decision issued October 14, 2020, by the Administrative Law Judge overseeing the case. The proposed decision had approved the settlement reached in October 2019 by Cal Water and the CPUC's Public Advocates Office, allowed Cal Water to continue its decoupling balancing accounts through 2022, enabled Cal Water to retain its pension and medical cost balancing accounts, and resolved the remaining issues excluded from the settlement.

The CPUC's decision authorizes Cal Water to invest $828 million in its districts through 2021 in order to continue providing safe, reliable water service to its customers throughout California. This includes $148 million of water system infrastructure upgrades that would be recovered via the CPUC's advice letter procedure after those projects are completed. The decision authorizes Cal Water to increase total adopted revenue company-wide by approximately $4.4 million in 2020, which will be collected beginning in 2021, and up to $20.9 million in 2021 and $21.4 million in 2022, subject to the CPUC's escalation earnings test. Additionally, Cal Water could increase revenue up to $17.3 million when the advice letter projects are completed. Rate changes will vary by service area.

"We appreciate the CPUC's thorough analysis and decision on our 2018 General Rate Case and Infrastructure Improvement Plan, which will enable us to continue fulfilling our promise to provide quality, service, and value to our customers and firefighters," said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. "We take our responsibility to provide a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water at affordable rates very seriously, and will continue working hard every day for the nearly 2 million people we serve."

To help support those in need amid the pandemic this holiday season, Cal Water partnered with the Salvation Army, Yuba-Sutter Food Bank, Marysville Elks Lodge, and Habitat for Humanity to feed 1,500 families with a drive-through donation line and safe delivery service on Thanksgiving. Through the utility's annual Operation Gobble program, Cal Water also donated a total of $18,000 to the Salvation Army, Hands of Hope, Yuba-Sutter Food Bank, Twin Cities Rescue Mission, St. John's Episcopal Church, Yuba-Sutter Stand Down, Habitat for Humanity, Christian Assistance Network, and Marysville Elks Lodge, so that residents could receive assistance and essential services throughout the holidays.

"Cal Water is committed to improving the lives of those in the communities we serve," said Operations Manager Mary Jones. "The holidays can be a stressful time already, but this year more than ever, we are here to support local organizations and families, as the coronavirus pandemic has had a profound effect financially on many of our customers and community members. That is why we increased this year's donation from previous years."

Operation Gobble donations come from the utility's philanthropic giving program, not from water rates.
