RRCWD's New Tank Mural
When the very talented Muralist and Fine Artist Amanda Lynn first approached the board several months ago and asked if she could paint a mural on one of our tanks, we were like, "What?" – never having been asked by anyone if they could to do this.
Ms. Lynn wanted to do a community project and needed a large surface on which to work. Once we viewed her site (alynnpaint.com) , saw her delightful work, had our attorney make sure this was kosher and the fact she would do it for free, the board was all-in.
She painted all the way around this very tall and very wide tank and used her own equipment.
We are so pleased with the results and want to thank Ms. Lynn for choosing our water district tank.
If anyone would like to see it, drive up Woodside Road. It can be seen from the road. Please do not disturb the neighbors.

The Russian River County Water District is a public water system established under the Water Code of the State of California. It provides fresh, safe, high-quality water for both domestic use and fire protection to just over 1,200 Forestville households nestled along the Russian River in western Sonoma County, California.
The Russian River County Water District delivers clean, high quality potable water that consistently — and readily — surpasses health standards set by the State of California.
Our sealed wells in the Russian River plain are protected from flooding, while our series of interconnected water tanks provide water for home use and a network of high pressure fire hydrants throughout our service area.
The district’s board believes that investing in efficiency is the best – and the cheapest – path toward both conserving our natural water resources and the district’s long-term economic health. Chasing these goals, the board periodically offers free low-flow toilets to replace older, water-wasting models to reduce water consumption by district customers. (Toilets have been shown to be the single biggest user of water in the average home.)
