While El Valle Water Alliance was incorporated in 2006, the end of 2011 marked our first year in operation. The celebration of our first year of operation marked an important milestone, identifying where we have been and who we are. It’s also time to anticipate the opportunities yet before us recognizing that the past is history and the present is the dawn to the future. As we look ahead to the future, we’re reminded of the legacy we leave for future generations, a legacy shaped by the decisions we make and the priorities we value. With this in mind, we commit to building upon the qualities that have made our communities vibrant, by advancing efforts to ensure that every family has access to safe drinking water. So let us continue anew-let us explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us. In our hands rest the final success or failure of our course.
