Metropolitan Water District to Present $3.1 Million Check for Long Beach Conjunctive Use Project, Thursday, July 14.

WHAT:   Presentation of check to the Long Beach Water Department for
        $3.1 million in State of California Proposition 13 grant funds
        by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to
        construct a regional conjunctive use water storage and
        recovery project with the City of Lakewood.

WHEN:   Thursday, July 14, 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

WHERE:  Heartwell Park -- Across from 3965 Clark Avenue
        Long Beach, CA  90808

WHO:    - Mr. Kevin Wattier, General Manager,
          Long Beach Water Department

        - Ms. Helen Hansen, President,
          Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners

        - Mr. James Glancy, Director of Water Resources,
          City of Lakewood

        - Ms. Debra Man, Chief Operating Officer,
          Metropolitan Water District of Southern California

WHY:    The Long Beach Water Department is continuing to develop a
        water supply reliability portfolio that resembles that of an
        experienced and successful investor: smart, diversified and
        productive. The reliability of southern California's water
        supply rests on four pillars of critical investment:
        conservation, reclamation, desalination and conjunctive use.
        Increased utilization and progressive management of
        groundwater storage will significantly strengthen supply
        reliability and help maintain affordable water rates.
        Undertaking its second large conjunctive use project, the Long
        Beach Water Department will construct an Aquifer Storage and
        Recovery (ASR) well in the City of Lakewood that will allow
        storage of up to 3,600 acre-feet of imported water during
        normal to wet hydrologic years for use in times of emergency,
        drought or other special conditions.
