NOW HIRING LIFEGUARDS
DIVE INTO SUMMER EVENT
After the long, cold and snowy winter, the District is looking forward to kicking off the warm weather with a Dive into Summer Event on Friday, June 16th from 5-7 pm at the Sun Valley Community Park. The event is open to the public. Bring your family, friends, picnic blanket or lawn chairs and enjoy a FREE BBQ including hot dogs, chips and soda. The event will include music, information booths from our recreation partners, $1 RAFFLE TICKETS for a chance to win great prizes, and a limited amount of free Sun Valley Pool tokens. (No alcohol, smoking or vaping is permitted and leashed service dogs only). Watch the District’s website and Facebook page for event details.
The District encourages water conservation year-round even with a wet winter like we have experienced this year. The District recommends following Truckee Meadows Water Authority’s schedule to water three times per week. Odd addresses should water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Even addresses should water on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

KTMB GREAT COMMUNITY CLEANUP
The District is participating in the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Great Community Cleanup again on April 29th. This annual event helps Sun Valley clean up illegal dumping and encourages local community members to join in and volunteer. Last year over 30,000 pounds of litter and 187 tires were removed from Sun Valley. For more information or to sign up to participate, visit www.KTMB.org or call (775) 851-5185.
NEW LIBRARY KIOSK
The District is excited to partner with Washoe County Library System to install a book vending machine in front of the Sun Valley Neighborhood Center. The machine will allow the public access to check out, reserve and return books at the Sun Valley Community Park during park hours, sunrise to sunset.
ARPA GRANT UPDATE
The Washoe County Commission awarded the District a $250,000 Grant using American Rescue Plan Act federal funds. To date, the District has completed a rehabilitation of the Sun Valley
Community Park basketball court and pedestrian walking path with a project cost of $82,402, as well as a rehabilitation of the outdoor park lighting and exterior building lighting at the Sun Valley
Community Park with a project cost of $17,693.00. Additional projects to be funded by the grant and expected to be completed this summer include the rehabilitation of the outdoor park lighting and replacement of two scoreboards at Gepford Park.
DID YOU KNOW?
Since fraudulent activities and advertisements seem to be increasing in the area, the District wants its customers to know that they are always welcome to contact the office to ensure the validity
of any correspondence received. Customers may also request to see an employee’s ID badge for verification any time a technician may be servicing a customer’s water or sewer lines.
