What’s the Buzz Chula Vista?

Earlier this year, the South Bay Water Board of Directors kicked off a rebranding effort to better connect with the community. They want a fresh logo that reflects the district’s role as the governance branch of Sweetwater Authority. For those who might not know, Sweetwater Authority ensures that 200,000 residents in South Bay have access to safe and reliable tap water.

And here’s where you come in! The Board of Directors is inviting YOU to design the new logo. South Bay Water President Manny Delgado shared his excitement about the project. “We are thrilled to connect with the residents and business owners we serve by asking them to submit their vision for our district’s logo. We know there is incredible talent in South Bay, and we look forward to seeing the creativity of our community.”

Here is the previous logo of the South Bay Irrigation District, which has now been renamed South Bay Water.

Why Participate?

This competition is more than just creating a logo—it’s about being part of something historic. Manny Delgado mentioned how the district has evolved over the years. “It is a look forward. In the past, it was a lot of irrigation, a lot of farming and agriculture, but we have moved on as we have grown in the community. It is exciting also because this is something historic. So, we wanted to open it up to the community and give them the opportunity to showcase their talents. I think it is exciting. I think we have great talent here, so we are looking forward to what comes up.”

About the South Bay Water (Sweetwater Authority)

South Bay Water (SBW) was formed as an independent California Special District in 1951 to represent local residents. Voter approval assured the move toward access to imported water from the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA), the County’s water wholesaler. At that time, local water resources were inadequate to serve the needs of those living and working in the growing Sweetwater Valley.

In 1977, as a result of another public initiative, SBW and National City formed a joint powers public water agency, named Sweetwater Authority (Authority). Today, the Authority manages and operates the system that provides water to National City, western and central portions of Chula Vista, and Bonita. South Bay Water acts as the governance branch of the Authority, providing five elected representatives to sit on the Authority’s seven-member Governing Board (Board). Two additional directors are appointed to the Authority’s Board by the Mayor of National City, subject to City Council confirmation.

SBW remains committed to ensuring reliable and high-quality water services for the community. Through its governance role, SBW continues to uphold its mission of advocating for the needs of local residents and fostering sustainable water management practices. The collaborative efforts between SBW and Sweetwater Authority exemplify the dedication to providing essential resources while maintaining a focus on innovation and efficiency in water supply management.
