Community Outreach

Outreach to our community and our customers is extremely important to Soquel Creek Water District. We strive to be an accessible community partner and help our community learn about and understand our local water supply.

  • Request a Community Presentation  (for community groups, professional organizations, neighborhood, and HOAs, church groups, etc.).
  • Request a Facility Tour of a well, pump station, or water tank.
  • Request an Education Presentation or Tour (for preschool through college).
  • Stop by and visit us at a local community event.

Presentations & Speakers

Do you have an upcoming meeting where your members may be interested in learning about our mid-county water issues such as groundwater, water reliability, water conservation, and long-term actions towards sustainability?  We are available to speak to small and large groups. We regularly present to our local Rotary clubs, Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis clubs, Surfrider, Aptos Community United Methodist Church, Cliffwood Estates - just to name a few.

Pure Water Soquel Water Education Trailer

Request the water education trailer to visit your group or school.​ It's like a mobile museum exhibit! It displays our Community Water Plan supply options in a hands-on way and shows the steps involved in advanced water treatment to replenish and recharge the groundwater basin. See a reverse osmosis filter unrolled and the cross section of a microfiltration tube. A short video shown in the trailer summarizes the water projects being studied to help heal the groundwater basin.  

To invite a speaker to a meeting, please contact Becca Rubin at 831-475-8501 ext. 118 or

Community Water Plan Learning Center

Take a self-guided journey to explore “Our Path to a Reliable Water Supply.” Visitors will gain a deeper understanding of the groundwater basin (our sole source of water) that is threatened by seawater contamination and climate change, how the District gathers data to better manage the groundwater basin, and the four water supply options that we are evaluating.

Have you ever wondered how water from your tap gets there? What does the Water District do to make sure that it's safe and clean to drink?  Soquel Creek Water District offers tours to small groups and classes year-round to give our students and community residents an opportunity to learn more about the District, encourage an open dialogue, and answer questions. We also provide 'Open Public Tours' twice a year. Tours are a great 'behind the scenes' way to view our facilities, learn how our water system works, meet and greet District representatives. 

The District provides free water education programs that are available to students and teachers from preschool through college and community groups within our service area.

To request a tour of a well or tank for a group or class, please contact Becca Rubin at 831.475.8501x118 or
