As we work together to get through this global health crisis, Valley Water remains focused on continuing to deliver safe, clean water to our community, and protect residents and businesses from flooding. The COVID-19 virus is not impacting the safety of your drinking water, or our ability to supply water in Santa Clara County. Under the state and county’s shelter-in-place order, Valley Water is considered essential as an organization from a utility and public works perspective. Critical operations are continuing in support of our core mission of providing clean, safe water, essential infrastructure, water supply, flood protection projects and creek maintenance.
The Santa Clara Valley Water District (Valley Water) has been a participating member of the American Public Works Association (APWA) for over 40 years. Valley Water staff and retirees have served on the board of the local APWA South Bay Area Chapter and have volunteered their time in support of APWA activities.
Valley Water is proud to recognize May 17–23, 2020 as National Public Works Week. “The Rhythm of Public Works” is the theme of this year’s campaign.
