The Edward C. Little Recycling Facility and Visitor Center serves the community as an administrative building and water education center. Its renovation includes several components. SVA reconfigured the existing large conference room and constructed a new, divisible meeting/conference room to meet the needs of the growing water district. The design also provides additional storage locations and restroom facilities, as well as a remodel of the reception area. A key design component is a multipurpose visitor center/exhibit room that includes interpretive exhibits with the goal to provide greater water education on relevant issues to the general public.
