Friends, colleagues and community partners gathered at the Cuttle Weir on May 11 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District and to recognize former General Manager Daniel Cozad, who has retired. It was a night also to celebrate the issuing of the District’s first annual Scrappy Award, which recognized San Bernardino County Department of Public Works Flood Supervisor Brian Kloepfer for the value of his helpful, creative, and high-impact contributions to the Upper Santa Ana River Wash.
