For 70 years, the Ironhouse Sanitary District has pushed the boundaries of innovation to promote a healthy, clean environment for the residents of Oakley and Bethel Island.
On Aug. 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the district will host a family-friendly event to both remember the past and look to the future. Oakley and Bethel Island residents can come out and have lunch on the district, take a tour of the Water Recycling Facility, and get a look at the equipment the district uses to keep the environment clean today.
Children will have a chance to play in the Kidz Zone, while adults and families can enjoy live music. The event will feature a ceremony that concludes with the dedication of a bronze plaque honoring the men and women responsible for building the strong, environmentally sound sanitary district you see today.
Keynote speaker will be Steven Moore of the California State Water Resources Control Board. Also scheduled to speak at the event are 9th District U.S. Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-Livermore), and Oakley Mayor Doug Hardcastle. For more information, see ISD’s website at www.IronhouseSanitaryDistrict.
