Beyond Water & Sewer Services
Jurupa Valley, CA (November 13, 2018) – Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD) successfully concluded a week of excitement, sustainability and education. The week was filled with an amazing skate and BMX competition, rain barrel sale and mulch giveaway, and a boat-building workshop.
JCSD’s Parks & Recreation department hosted “Skate & BMX Jam” at Harada Heritage Skatepark in the city of Eastvale on Saturday, November 3, 2018. The event included an amateur competition, music, food, prizes and giveaways. On the same day, JCSD provided mulch to residents within its service area. Residents lined up at JCSD’s headquarter building in the city of Jurupa Valley to load up on their share of 80 cubic yards of mulch that was provided at no charge. Mulch helps residents keep their gardens looking their best by retaining moisture in the soil, insulating the ground from heat and cold temperatures, and by keeping weeds to a minimum. Customers who attended the mulch giveaway event, also had the opportunity to purchase rain barrels at a discounted rate. Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens or indoor plants. Because rainwater is highly oxygenated and devoid of salts and other minerals, it’s the ideal substance to water your plants and lawns.
The excitement continued at the 17th annual Solar Cup Competition hosted by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MET). JCSD and Western Municipal Water District are co-sponsoring a team representing Roosevelt High School in the city of Eastvale. This weekend, students met to construct 16-foot boats using boat hull kits, building instructions, and power tools. A true regional event across southern California, the boat-building workshop was held at Three Valleys Municipal Water District in Claremont. The student teams will apply math and physics to build a solar-powered boat. Throughout the year, the students will experiment with various elements of the boat to increase speed, power and efficiency. During the three-day competition, held from May 17-19 at Lake Skinner in Temecula Valley, teams will be required to complete two technical reports, qualify for sprint and endurance races and provide a public service announcement.
