What's On Tap

We often like to share our points of view and priorities with our communities and customers. We invite you to take a look and see what’s on tap at Cal Water.

Providing Safe, Clean Water Amid Climate Change

By Ken Jenkins, Chief Water Resource Sustainability Officer
2023 has proven to be another year of communities across the globe confronting the realities of climate change. Here at home, Californians have endured a wide range of extreme weather events, from heavy rainstorms and flooding in January and February that caused millions of dollars in damages to a tropical storm just last month—the first tropical storm to hit southern California in 84 years.

Partnership with Fire Departments Goes Beyond Water

By Kevin McCusker, Manager of Community Affairs
In 2019, Cal Water established our annual Firefighter Grant Program—available to both professional and volunteer fire departments—to help offset the costs. Since then, Cal Water has given more than $668,000 to fire departments throughout our service areas in California.

Offering Financial Support to Customers

Can You Imagine a Day Without Water?

By Ken Jenkins, Chief Water Resource Sustainability Officer and Sophie James, Chief Water Quality Officer
Due to extreme weather patterns, water service providers must be prepared to face different challenges that come with climate change.

Making Water Conservation Part of Every Season

By Ken Jenkins – Chief Water Resource Sustainability Officer
While everyone can agree that California has had an intense—and in some cases, devastating—start to 2023, with heavy rainstorms causing loss of life and millions of dollars in damages, there are many questions and growing uncertainty surrounding what the state can expect next.

Needed Now: Safe Drinking Water for All Californians

By Sophie James, Director of Water Quality
While nobody disputes that everyone should have safe, clean drinking water, not every Californian does.

This is why the action California’s state environmental health officials took recently on so-called “forever chemicals” is so important.
