San Diego, CA-- The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) presented its Regional Outreach Award (Region 10) to Rincon Water in recognition of its advocacy efforts during 2018. The ACWA’s Regional Outreach Program supports water agency contacts with legislators, key regulators, and administration officials which directly influences regulatory decisions and mandates.

The award was presented during the annual ACWA Fall Conference & Exhibition in San Diego, held the last week of November, where well over 1,000 local water officials gathered for programs and panel discussions on California's critical water issues. Rincon Water was among ten finalists for the award which is broken down to 10 regions, and honors stellar advocacy efforts programs developed and run by California water agencies.

In addition, Rincon Water was awarded the Rising Star Award which recognizes increased efforts made by Rincon Water, especially during a year of significant legislation relative to California’s drought and water quality.
