West Basin Municipal Water District will host its 20th annual Water Harvest festival on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. outside of its Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility (ECLWRF) in El Segundo, Calif. The free, family-oriented event will be a block party this year featuring educational booths, games, giveaways and water-related activities.
The event will take place on South Hughes Way, outside of the ECLWRF, to become a community block party. Typically, the District hosts the event at its water recycling facility but changed the venue to the street due to renovations underway at the facility’s visitor and education center. Free parking and shuttle service to the event will be available once again this year at 1960 E. Grand Ave. (at Pacific Coast Highway, formerly Sepulveda Boulevard) in El Segundo.
“Water Harvest is a tremendous opportunity to celebrate our most important resource with members of the communities we serve,” said West Basin Board President Donald L. Dear. “We look forward to this annual event to provide attendees with more information about West Basin, our water conservation programs and our plans to provide a safe and reliable supply of high-quality water.”
Water Harvest is designed to entertain children, adults and families alike with fun water education activities, food, games, stage shows, kids costume contest, giveaways and more. Each year, thousands of community members bring their families to Water Harvest to learn about water conservation, water use efficiency and environmental stewardship in their everyday lives.
The District will also recognize five local organizations and individuals who have showcased their commitment to local water issues during its “Water Reliability” awards ceremony, which will commence on the main event stage at 11 a.m.
