Triunfo Water & Sanitation District 2023 Year in Review

Triunfo_Blog_Graphic_2023YearInReview_1200x630

As we close our year, 2023 Chair of the Triunfo Water & Sanitation District Jane Nye shares her thoughts.

It is a pleasure serving the 30,000-plus people who live, work, and play in Triunfo Water & Sanitation District’s (TWSD) service area. It’s our goal to be the best possible resource for our water and sanitation customers—while consistently delivering exceptional customer service.

Last year’s storm events painted a very different picture for us. Unprecedented winter storms replenished water supplies throughout the state, and we hope this year will deliver the same.

We have made great progress with the Pure Water Project, which is managed by The Las Virgenes-Triunfo Joint Powers Authority (JPA). We are continuing our efforts to provide customers with access to a renewable, affordable, and sustainable source of high-quality drinking water.

I’d like to note that the Calleguas/Las Virgenes Interconnection Project (the ongoing construction on Lindero Canyon Road) will further enhance our potable water supply reliability. This project is scheduled to be completed by early summer.

Cutting-edge technology has been brought to our administrative and customer service offices. State-of-the-art audio and video in our boardroom, conference room, offices, and general areas enable us to provide information more efficiently to our customers. Our boardroom, in addition to hosting TWSD and JPA board meetings, also will serve as a community classroom and meeting area.

This year, we were honored to receive the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) award for Excellence in Financial Reporting. Our staff continues to strive for and achieve high-quality results in all departments.

As I pass the gavel to our new chair and as we end our 60th year, I want to encourage you to use water wisely—while we all hope for rain, snow-packed Sierras, and the overall easing of drought, it’s going to take an on-going effort to use our water resources efficiently. Thank you!
