Tap Water Day Open House

Water plant tours aren’t just for fifth graders anymore! On Saturday, May 12 from 10 am to 2 pm, the City of Napa opens the gates to its state-of-the-art Edward I. Barwick Jamieson Canyon Water Treatment Plant at 270 Kirkland Ranch Roach, just off Highway 12. At this first annual “Tap Water Day” Open House, the community is invited to see the equipment, processes, and people that convert raw water from the Sacramento River Delta into clean, safe drinking water for several Napa Valley cities. Tours of the facility will start every twenty minutes, including an up close look at the laboratory and advanced control system. Browse banners in the filter gallery displaying the historical milestones that led up to today’s modern water system.  View a running slide show of our other major water facilities. See a display of the various pipes in the underground distribution system. Check out a large system map, ask questions of our engineers, and learn the value of tap water compared to other consumer products.
Tap Water Day is a family event. Our water conservation information booth will be on hand to greet arrivals. Children can win water-themed prizes playing our “Knock Out Water Waste” ball toss game. Light snacks and beverages will be available, including water of course - in a giveaway sports bottle. And you can’t beat the bay view from the top of the hill! No registration is needed for this free community event. Just stop by anytime between 10 and 2. Plenty of parking is available.
May is Watershed Awareness Month. Tap Water Day Open House is just one of many local activities demonstrating the critical role of watersheds. For a full list, visit

Kids on the Green

Silverado Students on the Green!

Napa Golf Course at Kennedy Park recently hosted students from Silverado Middle School to provide an interactive vocational experience. The students participated in a wide variety of activities including golf course maintenance by learning how to properly rake a bunker as well as how to operate the greens roller and range ball picker. Students also learned about commercial kitchen operations and food prep by helping make (…and taste) french fries, appetizers and banana bread. They also learned about the important ecosystem at the golf courses by viewing the numerous bird boxes on the property. Lastly, students got hands-on practice as a front line salesperson by using their point of sale operations in the Pro Shop. This was the 3rd annual field trip for Silverado School to the Napa Golf Course. The goal was to show students you don’t need to be a golfer to work in the golf industry.
