THREE THINGS  Y OU NEED TO KNOW
  ABOUT MET  THIS WEEK

A weekly newsletter by and for Metropolitan employees
AUGUST 7, 2017
Getting Our Fill 
What has happened to all the rain from last winter?  

A lot of it is going into storage, including Met's own Diamond Valley Lake in Riverside County.  Did you know it's t he largest reservoir in Southern California?  

In March 2016, Diamond Valley Lake was at its lowest point since its initial fill in 1999-2000 .  But this year, the water has been flowing fast through our Inland Feeder and now the lake is nearly full. In fact, Metropolitan will store more water this year in all its storage reserves combined than any other single year. It's a beautiful site. Come see for yourself.


Summer Fun Times
You, your families and friends are invited to two summer events:  Our H2Love light show will be featured on the famous Pacific Park Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier on  Sat. Aug 12, 19, 26 and Sept 2. As part of our promotion, we have 20 sets (two each) of unlimited ride wristbands to  Pacific Park  for Met employees. To be part of the drawing, click  here .

And LA Galaxy goalie Brian Rowe will join us at the Audubon Center at Debs Park on Friday,  Aug 18 for games, dinner and the dedication of the Metropolitan-sponsored Native Garden. The park is located at 4700 Griffin Ave., Los Angeles. We h ope you can join us for these Summer of H2Love activities.




Breaking Boundaries
Under water or on land, Kelly Lorenz is monitoring the safety of the Southland's drinking water.  

A certified SCUBA instructor and world-experienced teacher and diver, Kelly came to Met seven years ago bringing her background as a chemist/microbiologist at MillerCoors brewery.  

She is a limnologist (expert in inland water bodies) and diver working out of the Water Quality lab in La Verne. Kelly monitors water quality from the field and at her desk, where she analyzes data received remotely.
