As part of California’s fifth annual Water Professionals Appreciation Week, Carmichael Water District (CWD) is pleased to highlight the essential role of water professionals and local public water agencies in providing water services.
We appreciate the dedication of our highly trained operators, technicians, administrative professionals, and all of our specialists who are making sure our community has safe and reliable drinking water especially amidst a drought and pandemic.
Water Professionals Appreciation Week was established in 2017 by Senate Concurrent Resolution 80, by Sen. Bill Dodd (D-Napa). Recent labor studies estimate that 60,000 people work in California’s water industry and it needs roughly 6,000 new employees each year due to turnover. The water industry offers a wide variety of rewarding career opportunities in engineering, biology, finance, business administration, law, communications and many more types of positions in high-demand occupations.
Water service is essential to the health and success of our community and Water Professionals Appreciation Week is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the vital services CWD staff perform to ensure a safe and reliable water supply.
