West Basin Water Harvest festival goes virtual this fall
The West Basin Municipal Water District will host its 22nd annual Water Harvest community festival virtually this fall, the agency has announced.
The free online festival is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 23. It is meant to teach participants about local water issues.
West Basin imports drinking water, recycles water and promotes water conservation for 17 cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles County.
“We are excited to develop a fun, fresh version of the event that will keep our community members connected and learning about our precious water sources from the comfort of their homes,” Harold Williams, president of West Basin’s Board of Directors, said in the recent announcement. “This is especially important as our county and state faces increasingly severe drought conditions.”
The Water Harvest traditionally takes place at the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility, in El Segundo, and draws more than 1,000 attendees. But as the county continues navigating the coronavirus pandemic, the agency decided to go virtual. The event will feature water-related activities, games and giveaways for all ages.
