Free water education community festival returns on Oct. 26 to the renovated Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility
West Basin Municipal Water District today announced that its 21st annual Water Harvest festival will return to its newly renovated Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility (ECLWRF) in El Segundo, Calif. on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The free, family-oriented event will celebrate the community’s efforts to secure our region’s water future with the theme “Water for Tomorrow.”
“Water Harvest is West Basin’s largest annual event and open house where we showcase the work of the water district while educating the public on how we can all do our part to ensure a sustainable water future,” said West Basin Board President Scott Houston. “We are particularly excited this year to welcome the community to our renovated Visitors Center, and to once again provide tours of the plant where you can see firsthand how we recycle water that both protects our ocean and provides a secure, drought-resistant supply to the customers we serve.”
Water Harvest provides a fun, educational experience for District residents of all ages. The festival will include interactive water-education activities, games, stage shows, vendor booths, giveaways, prize drawings, a kids costume contest and free food. The District will also recognize five local organizations and individuals who have showcased their commitment to securing our region’s water future during its “Water for Tomorrow” awards ceremony that will commence on the main event stage at 11:30 a.m.
The event draws more than 1,200 attendees each year to learn about our region’s water supply, water use efficiency, recycled water and techniques to develop a sustainable lifestyle.
The festival will take place outside of the ECLWRF, located at 1935 S. Hughes Way in El Segundo. 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.
