FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JUNE 11, 2014 –

City councilman Bill Kristoff (fifth from left) was present at the renaming of West Sacramento’s water treatment plant in honor of his father, the late George Kristoff. The elder Kristoff was one of the activists who helped create a local public water plant to replace a privately-run water service.

Kristoff was a member of “People for Better Water” and served on the East Yolo Community Services District board before West Sacramento became a city. “People for Better Water” championed a bond issue to create a water plant.

The plant on the city’s northwest has operated since 1988.
