The Water Association of Kern County is excited to unveil its newest #MagicOfWater campaign, The History of Water. A private building owned by a past water leader of Kern County on the corner of El Tejon and Chester Avenue has been wrapped in historic water images showcasing the magic of water to show an appreciation for the history of water.

Take a look back in time to learn how the Kern River was established for use in our agriculture industry, see images of our oil industry and how water is essential to oil production, as well as a glimpse into the once booming cotton industry of Kern County. These historic images show water through the years as our county has evolved into a focal point for agriculture and oil history.

To accompany this Oildale mural, WAKC is also debuting the release of the History of Water video. Follow us on social media (@water4kern) to watch the video, or find it on YouTube: https://youtube.com/watch?v=RbIIY-rCDPEhttps://youtube.com/watch?v=RbIIY-rCDPE, and keep up with water tips, tricks and trivia!

The Water Association of Kern County is a non-profit organization designed to educate and inform Kern County citizens about water issues and events. Members consist of local water districts, agencies and affiliated groups and individuals. More information may be found at wakc.com.
