Celebrate Water Awareness Month Virtually! 

Water is a serious subject in California, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also have fun while we learn more about it.

For 32 years, the month of May has been known as California’s Water Awareness Month to help educate the community on using water wisely and all of the infrastructure in our water systems. This year, snap a photo of your favorite SMWD infrastructure for our photo contest. One grand prize winner will have their photo displayed on one of SMWD’s large trucks!
