May contain: person, human, crowd, audience, clothing, and apparel

At this year's Annual California Special Districts Association Conference Rainbow MWD was awarded the 2022 CSDA Innovative Project of the Year Award for our Rapid Aerial Water Supply Project - also known as a Heli-Hydrant.   This system allows immediate access to a clean source of water for firefighting helicopters that can be controlled by the helicopter pilot firsthand.   This project was a partnership between Rainbow, North County Fire, and CalFire - a great example of collaboration between the agencies that provide fire protection services in our region.   Click the link below to see the video that CSDA put together for the awards ceremony held on August 23, 2022.
