The California Water Company will hold a "Water Awareness Festival" from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 12, in Atherton's Holbrook-Palmer Park's Carriage House and North Meadow at 150 Watkins Ave.
The free event is in celebration of National Water Awareness Month.
Activities for children will include face painting and a coloring station; for the adults, there will be raffles for drought-tolerant plants, information about how to get free water-saving devices, and water service information provided by Cal Water's water quality, engineering, conservation, and environmental affairs departments.
"This Water Awareness Festival is a great opportunity for customers to come talk with our experts about some of today's most pressing issues including conservation, watering restrictions, water quality, and water supply," said Cal Water Bear Gulch District Manager Dawn Smithson. "We hope our customers come, enjoy the entertainment, and learn how Cal Water can help them during this historic drought."
Cal Water serves about 57,500 people through 18,800 service connections in Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside, and Menlo Park, Ms. Smithson said. The company has provided water service in the area since 1936. Additional information may be obtained on the Cal Water[www.calwater.com website.
