May 27, 2021
Valley Water

We are deeply saddened by the senseless act of violence that claimed innocent lives at a VTA facility in San Jose. Our hearts, prayers, and sincerest condolences go out to all VTA employees, their families, and everyone affected by this tragedy. The Valley Water family is grieving with our community. We have lowered the flags to half-staff at Valley Water’s headquarters to honor those who lost their lives.

We hope that the community will support the efforts of Working Partnerships USA, who are accepting donations in support of the victims and their families. Please consider contributing and helping our community members in need.
