60 Years of Water Leadership
Upper District's 6 Week Campaign of Historical Accomplishments 
Over the past 60 years, Upper District has been at the forefront of water conservation, community outreach, and  applying innovative approaches to complex water issues in the San Gabriel Valley. To celebrate the number of achievements and water savings from our regional programs, Upper District has organized a six-week campaign for the 60 years of leadership. Each week, we will roll out a significant program that has led to lasting and positive conservation behaviors...stay tuned on social media for the campaign. To kick off, view some of our water saving numbers below.
60th Anniversary Activity Sheets
Learning about Water through Fun n' Games

Lions and Tigers..and Uppy the Squirrel? Oh My! 
"Uppy" the Squirrel, our Watershed Restoration mascot, has cheered on our volunteers for over 29 years.  This program in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service was one of the agency's very first conservation programs. Since then, over 140,016 tree saplings have been planted, 133 lbs. of acorns gathered and 4,865 lbs. of garbage collected. 
Racing to the Solar Cup Challenge
Solar Cup is an educational program hosted by Metropolitan Water District. It provides high school teams an opportunity to build a solar powered boat over a 7 month timeline, and compete in a three-day sprint and endurance competition. Upper District has participated since 2003. To date, 64 high school teams in the San Gabriel Valley have participated and $177,500 has been awarded.
