    Please Note: Read the directions below BEFORE you RSVP 'Yes' for this event.

    1) I am hosting this event for both Gay Foodies and Pleasure Palate.

    2) The tour is FREE but you need to register online to reserve your spot in the tour: http://www.lvmwd.com/your-water/quarterly-facility-tour

    3) I strongly recommend that you register for the tour online sooner, rather than later, because there is a chance the tour will be fully booked as we get closer to the actual tour date.

    4) I will be arranging a carpool that will meet at 8 AM meeting at the Sepulveda Garden Center in Encino. The address is: 16633 Magnolia Blvd., Encino, CA 91406

    If you carpool, please give the designated driver $4 to reimburse for gas and car maintenance.

    5) When you arrive at the carpool sit or the water treatment plant, please call me at:[masked]

    6) If the group is hungry after the tour, we can have lunch at a nearby restaurant like Saddlepeak Lodge.

    7) This is the scheduled itinerary: http://www.lvmwd.com/home/showdocument?id=2074

    This event was suggested by PP member Joe.

    I'm always fascinated by the history and mechanics of how LA sources and treats its water supply because without it, the City of Angles would not exist. Its a precious resource that too many Angelenos take for granted until our water is rationed during times of drought. So come join me as we tour the Las Virgenes Water Treatmet plant and learn everything (then some) about how we get our water and the complex way it starts from snow in our mounatins, to treated, drinkable water in our faucets.

    Are you curious about where your drinking water comes from? What happens to your wastewater? Interested in knowing more about what happens at the Water District? 

    You can find these answers and more during one of our FREE quarterly tours and find out first hand. Learn about the journey of your drinking water, watershed stewardship, the process of wastewater reclamation, water conservation, and the composting process. Tours include a chance to meet other residents, a presentation on current issues facing the district, on-site visits to our facilities, and a question and answer period while you enjoy a light lunch.

    Each tour begins at 8:45 a.m. and lasts until about 1 p.m. (approximately 4.25 hours).  Moderate walking and stairs are to be expected, along with boarding and exiting a school bus. Children must be 12 or older and those under age 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

    After the tour, if the group is up for it, we can go for a Bonus Round and check out the Old Trapper's lodge statues in Pierce College on the way back to Encino: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2046

    Same for me as I signed up with Pleasure Pallette but still on wait list...

    Is everyone else confirmed with the LVMWD? I am on the wait list inspite of attempting to RSVP as soon as this was posted. If anyone else is confirmed with the LVMWD but does not have a one of the 5 Pleasure Palate spaces I will step aside since Deborah said she will not be able to get me a space until as late as Friday?

      Jeff: We are all on the Wait List. I spoke with Deborah and she said if she is not able to get us in this Saturday, she will schedule and provide a separate private tour for us at a later date - I'm aiming for later this month. She has been trying to be as accommodating as possible and if she takes an extra Saturday off to host us, that's on her own volunteer time. I'm actually thinking a private tour for just our group would be even better since it would be an even more intimate experience.

      Ok. it looks like they overbooked and made it appear if you don't reply on time you are out to a wait list. Their customers take precedence so if a school or group from the local area decides to go we get kicked out. Private Tour might be better.

    If we don't get into the tour this Saturday, I will post and host another alternative tour that will visit several points of interest along the 101 freeway. I will only post that tour this Friday as soon as we hear back from Deborah whether or not we get into the tour.
