May 25, 2021 – Rowland Water District is proud to join the California Special Districts Association (CSDA) in acknowledging “Special Districts Week”. During the third annual celebration that took place May 16-22, 2021, special districts like Rowland Water worked to raise community awareness and understanding about the crucial role special districts play in everyday life. California’s thousands of essential workers across the state were highlighted.

More than 2,000 special districts provide millions of Californians with essential services, including those related to water and water recycling, parks and recreation, health care, fire protection, electricity, and more.

“This has certainly been a trying time for Californians, and we felt that it was important to join other area special districts in recognizing the work of our own employees here at Rowland,” says Tom Coleman, Rowland Water District General Manager. “Community outreach and engagement is an integral aspect of our success, and so we have been spotlighting some of our exemplary employees on our social media platforms. We also ask that if our customers happen to cross paths with a Rowland Water employee in their day to day lives, to consider thanking that employee for their service to our wonderful community.”

The CSDA is a 501c(6), not-for-profit association formed in 1969 to promote good governance and improved core local services through professional development, advocacy, and other services for all types of independent special districts. In addition, these districts often provide feedback concerning major policy and legislative issues that are significant statewide.

“Where would we be without special district workers? They do so much for so many, and their work will continue to make a difference in the lives of those we serve, long after the pandemic has ended,” adds Coleman.
