California American Water Brings Environmental Expertise As Newest Powerhouse Science Center Founding Partner

The Powerhouse Science Center in Sacramento today announced that California American Water has joined the campaign to build the premier science learning center serving Northern California.

As a founding partner, California American Water joins other regional leaders and organizations in a cooperative effort to support the development of this vital new community asset, and will lend their environmental and resource expertise to the project.

Located on the scenic banks of the Sacramento River, the Powerhouse Science Center will function as a model for 21st-century experiential STEM education (science, math, technology, engineering, space) and environmental stewardship. The design will be an exemplary “green” building that serves as an environmental teaching lab.

“We have invested millions of dollars in critical infrastructure to provide high quality reliable water service to our customers in the Sacramento region,” said California American Water Director of Operations Andrew Soule. “Becoming a founding partner of the Powerhouse Science Center is an investment in the education of our kids and the economic development of our community.”

California American Water joins the regional effort to create a home for a high-tech, hands-on science museum for the Greater Sacramento region that will immerse children in science, technology, engineering, and math. The Powerhouse Science Center will play a key role in inspiring young people to become the future engineers and scientists that California and our nation desperately need. One of the science center’s signature exhibitions, “Liquid Gold: Sustaining Our Watershed,” will focus on water resources, conservation, and environmental concerns.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome aboard California American Water as one of our founding partners,” said Michele Wong, Interim Executive Director for the Powerhouse Science Center. “California American Water shares our goal of transforming a historic Sacramento landmark into a cutting edge educational center, featuring a museum, planetarium, restaurant, and conference center. The Powerhouse Science Center is a tremendous collaborative effort between many dedicated groups and individuals that are all playing a significant role in making this vision of a premier science education center become a reality.”
