Yuba Water Agency today revealed its redesigned, more interactive website, further helping the nearly 60-year-old public agency develop a stronger relationship with the people of Yuba County.

The updated website follows the recent rebranding as Yuba Water Agency, and uses a simplified, user-friendly platform to house pertinent information about agency operations, current news, public documents and more.   

“Our website is like a digital ‘front door’ to our organization,” said Yuba Water Agency General Manager Curt Aikens. “As we continue to grow our community outreach program and connect more with the people we serve in Yuba County, we want our website to better represent us as the high-performing organization we are, and - at the same time - to make it easier for us to be transparent about our operations.” 

“For years, we have gone largely unnoticed by the public,” said Yuba Water Agency Board Chairman Brent Hastey. “We’re really making an effort to change that. This more engaging and interactive website will allow us to do a much better job of educating people about who we are and all of the great things we do for the people of Yuba County.”

The revamped website additionally allows members of the public to subscribe to updates for more information on agency operations, public meetings and specific topics of interest. 

As part of the updated branding and new moniker, the website address has changed to www.YubaWater.org
