All Stops in the April series (April 8 - 26) run from 11:30 am to 12:30pm

Join us for our Water Infrastructure Virtual Bus Tour Series – an opportunity to safely visit our facilities and learn how our water infrastructure works together to provide safe, clean drinking water for Santa Clara County residents, help keep communities safe, and preserve our natural resources – all from the comfort of your home.


All stops are FREE of cost.

Catch any of the stops at your convenience.


Stop #1 provides a breakdown of where our water comes from and challenges our water resources face. Come along with us on a visit of our county’s largest reservoir, Anderson Reservoir in Morgan Hill. We will also feature the Pacheco Reservoir Expansion Project, an exciting look at how replacing a small dam can result in enough water to supply water for up to 1.4 million people during an emergency for up to a year!(Thursday, April 8)


Stop #2 highlights how we keep our water safe and clean. We will take you on a tour of our treatment plants and state-of-the-art water quality lab. Learn how we test for more than 400 contaminants to ensure our drinking water is safe! We will also get a sneak peek at one of our largest facility upgrades – the Rinconada Reliability Improvement Project. Check out how our oldest water treatment plant in the valley is getting a makeover while continuing to operate 24/7 to provide safe, clean drinking water. (Thursday, April 15)


Stop #3 explains Valley Water’s role as the flood protection agency for our county and how we work with partner agencies and the community to complete flood protection projects. We will briefly visit the completed Downtown Guadalupe River Flood Protection Project and get a look at the Coyote Creek Flood Protection Project that is underway. (Thursday, April 22)


Stop #4 walks us through the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center, where we learn about how we are pursuing drought-resilient supplies through advanced water purification. Tune in to learn about the future of water reuse in Santa Clara County. (Thursday, April 29)
