On January 12th 2007, The Adobe Creek Watershed Group was honored with an award presented by the CEO of The Santa Clara Valley Water District, Mr Stan Williams. In his letter to the ACWG, Mr Williams said:The Adobe Creel Watershed Group would like to thank all those within the Water District who have worked so diligently with us to bring us to the point where we are today. There are many of them, but in particular we would like to specifically mention Beau, Katherine, Jason, Tony and Saeid whose combined leadership, skills, understanding, and good humor, have allowed this to grow into a true collaborative effort."Your exemplary community efforts have helped the District achieve its vision and goals including the Board's environmental stewardship goals and my Cleaner, Greener, Leaner vision."
(The irony in being presented with a portion of hardscape that requires no compensatory mitigation was not lost on the group.)
