‘Splash Into Spring’ event welcomes community for a day of family-oriented activities

LAKE ELSINORE – Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s annual open house event returns Saturday, March 25, from 9 a.m. to noon, at EVMWD headquarters, 31315 Chaney Street, in Lake Elsinore. “Splash Into Spring” is a free family event where attendees will learn about the process EVMWD uses to treat more than 5.5 million gallons of sewer water per day, the construction and maintenance of more than 700 miles of pipeline throughout the EVMWD service area and saving money and water with a more water efficient home and landscape.

Attendees will get a peek into the daily work at the district through a variety of demonstrations and interactive displays. Activities include fixing a leaky water main, performing a valve exercise, self-guided water-wise garden tours and more.

Visitors can also get a tour of EVMWD’s sewage treatment plant to see how wastewater becomes recycled water. Local landscape and irrigation experts as well as University of California Cooperative Extension Riverside County Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions about outdoor irrigation, California friendly plants, gardening and water-saving appliances and devices.

A special addition this year includes the Wyland Aquatic Lab on Wheels, which showcases water, watersheds and the impact of the most precious resource in people’s day-to-day lives.

Children can enjoy a fully immersed bubble experience and a child’s construction experience with children-sized backhoes and the chance to climb in big equipment.
