The Los Vaqueros Watershed Team of Cary Richardson, John Howard, Allison Batteate, Clayton Funk, Colton Rogers & Marco Siragusa earned CCWD's Outstanding Team Award for 2016.
The LV team was noted for its innovation, exemplary work performance and teamwork. This past year, it design and built kiosks that were located throughout the watershed that help visitors and hikers orient themselves and reduce the number of call outs to rescue lost visitors. The kiosks -- featuring fire danger levels, maps and guidelines to enjoying LV -- were designed and built by the staff. This allowed the staff to design them specifically for their needs, and cost less than commercially-designed kiosks.
