[4. PRESENTATION - San Bernardino County COVID-19 update - Supervisor Curt Hagman]

RIGHT FOR PRESENTATIONS.

I UNDERSTAND THAT NUMBER FOUR, WHICH ANYONE THAT'S LOOKING AT OUR AGENDA, UH, THE PRESENTATION MADE TONIGHT FOR SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY COVID-19 UPDATE BY SUPERVISOR.

KURT HAGMAN IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

SO WE'LL MOVE TO ITEM NUMBER

[5. PRESENTATION - West Valley Mosquito Vector Control District update]

FIVE PRESENTATION BY WEST VALLEY MOSQUITO VECTOR CONTROL DISTRICT UPDATE, WHO WILL BE MAKING OKAY.

BRIAN MESSENGER.

OKAY.

BRIAN, CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? YES, WE CAN.

THANK YOU.

VERY GOOD.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING US TONIGHT.

SO EVERYONE WHO GIVES US A QUICK UPDATE ON WHAT WAS HAPPENING WITH WEST NILE VIRUS AND THE STATUS OF MOSQUITOES THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT.

SO FAR THIS YEAR, WE HAVE ONLY HAD 10 SAMPLES OF MOSQUITOES COME BACK POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE VIRUS.

THIS IS, UH, ONE OF, UH, A RECORD LOW, WHICH IS, UH, OBVIOUSLY A GOOD THING.

THEY, UH, UNFORTUNATELY WE'RE ALL IN CHINO AND, UM, WE'VE BEEN, UH, CANVASS IN THAT AREA.

VERY HARD LOOKING FOR, YOU KNOW, ANY SOURCES THAT MIGHT BE THERE, BUT THE,

[00:05:01]

YOU KNOW, THE HOT WEATHER, THE WARM NIGHTTIME TEMPERATURES AND THE INCREASED HUMIDITY ARE ALL A MAJOR CONTRIBUTING FACTORS TO, YOU KNOW, UH, MOSQUITO BREEDING AND THE MOSQUITO POPULATION INCREASE.

SO I'M SURE IF WE, UH, HAD A CHANCE TO VIRTUALLY RAISE OUR HANDS, IF WE'D BEEN BITTEN BY MOSQUITOES THIS YEAR, WE WOULD PROBABLY BREAK THE INTERNET.

BUT WHAT WE'RE SEEING WITH, UH, THIS INCREASED FIGHTING BEHAVIOR IS ACTUALLY COMING FROM OUR INVASIVE MOSQUITOES, THAT EIGHTIES, I WILL PICK THIS AN EIGHTIES, EGYPT SIZE.

THESE ARE NON-NATIVE MOSQUITOES THAT HAVE BECOME ESTABLISHED IN OUR AREA, ACTUALLY ALL THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA NOW.

AND THEY ARE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE'RE USED TO.

THEY ARE, THEY LOVE PEOPLE.

THEY LOVE THE WATER THAT WE CONTAIN, AND THEY'RE VERY GOOD AT FINDING ANY SOURCE OF WATER USING IT.

AND, UH, YOU KNOW, PRIMARILY USING PEOPLE AS THEIR BLOOD RESERVOIRS, THEY'RE A SMALL BACKYARD CONTAINER BREEDER.

THEY LOVE SOMETHING AS SMALL AS A BOTTLE CAP, THEY CAN USE, UM, A BOTTLE CAPS WORTH OF WATER TO LAY THEIR EGGS IN AND GROW THEIR FOR THEIR LARVAE.

OUR TECHNICIANS GOING OUT ON NUMEROUS CALLS.

THIS, THIS LAST FEW MONTHS HAVE FOUND THAT POTTED PLANTS AND THE SAUCERS BELOW THE POT TENTS ARE ONE OF THE MAJOR FACTORS FOR THIS MOSQUITO TO LAY THEIR EGGS IN YOUR BACKYARD.

SO, YOU KNOW, GETTING RID OF ANY STANDING WATER THAT YOU MIGHT SEE AND ALSO SCRUBBING THOSE CONTAINERS OUT, SCRUBBING THOSE SAUCERS OUT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

AND WE'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF CALLS ABOUT, UH, NUMEROUS MOSQUITOES IN BACKYARDS.

BUT WHAT WE'RE FINDING IS THAT OVERALL THE EIGHTIES, I WOULD PICK THIS IN EIGHTIES, EGYPT, DYER, THE NUMBERS ARE VERY LOW, BUT THE BUYING BEHAVIOR OF THESE MOSQUITOES IS SO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WE'RE USED TO.

WE'RE PERCEIVING THAT AS BEING VERY HIGH NUMBERS OF MOSQUITOES, THIS MOSQUITO IS I LIKE TO CALL IT A SIPPER.

YOU KNOW, IT WILL COME IN AND IT'LL BITE AND IT'LL TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD AND THEN IT FLIES AWAY.

THEN IT COMES BACK AND IT BITES AGAIN, IT TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF BUD AND FLIES AWAY.

SO EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT SEEING HIGH NUMBERS AND YOU MAY NOT HAVE HIGH NUMBERS OF MOSQUITOES IN YOUR BACKYARD, EVEN AS A RELATIVELY FEW NUMBER CAN RESULT IN A HIGH NUMBER OF BITES.

AND, YOU KNOW, THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT WE'RE FINDING.

THEY'RE BITING FROM SORT OF THE KNEE DOWN THE ANKLE, BITER MOSQUITO.

AND OF COURSE, NOW THAT WE'RE ALL KIND OF SHELTERING IN PLACE AND STAYING AT HOME A LOT MORE, WERE SPENDING A LOT MORE TIME IN OUR BACKYARDS, YOU KNOW, USING THE PATIOS A LOT MORE THAN WE MIGHT'VE BEEN BEFORE.

AND WE'RE EXPOSING OURSELVES TO THOSE MOSQUITOES.

SO REALLY THIS YEAR, UH, PERSONAL PROTECTION IS A MONTH.

WE GOTTA HAVE, UH, PERSONAL PROTECTION MEASURES IN PLACE.

THAT'S PRIMARILY GOING TO BE IN THE EAR, RECOUNTS HEATER, REPELLENTS WITH FEET TO CARIBBEAN OIL OF LEMON EUCALYPTUS.

AND I ARE 35 35 ARE THE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS THAT ARE EPA REGISTERED AND CDC RECOMMENDED TO BE THE LONGEST LASTING AND MOST EFFECTIVE.

UH, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE TO EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT TYPES, DIFFERENT CONCENTRATIONS TO FIND WHAT, WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU.

YOU, AND AGAIN, LIKE I SAY, JUST DUMPING ANY STANDING WATER, ESPECIALLY PRODUCT PLANTS, CHECKING THOSE SAUCERS, COLLECTING WATER, AND ALSO CHECK YARD DRAINS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY DRAINS THAT ARE, UH, LEADING OUT TO THE FRONT AND THE FRONT GUTTERS, CHECK THOSE TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE AREN'T FOLDING MATER, UH, YOU CAN STAY UPDATED WITH US ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. WE'RE ON FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, AND TWITTER.

AND OF COURSE WE URGE OUR RESIDENTS TO CALL US IF THEY'RE HAVING MOSQUITO PROBLEMS, WE'LL COME OUT AND WE'LL, WE'LL HELP THEM OUT WITH THAT.

UH, OUR NUMBER IS (909) 635-0307.

OR YOU CAN REACH US@WVMVCD.ORG.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU, BRIAN.

ANYONE HAVE A QUESTION, BRIAN? ALL RIGHT.

[6. RECOGNITION - Certificate of Recognition to Chino Hills High School Solar Boat Team for placing 1st in the Metropolitan Water District Virtual Solar Cup Competition]

WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

MOVING RIGHT ALONG TO ITEM NUMBER SIX.

THIS WANT TO READ THIS FOR CHERYL? I HAVE A CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION TO CHINO HIGH SCHOOL SOLAR BOAT TEAM.

ALL RIGHT.

ON BEHALF OF THE CITY COUNCIL, I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE THE CHINO HILLS HIGH SCHOOL SOLAR BOAT TEAM FOR PLACING

[00:10:01]

NUMBER ONE FIRST PLACE IN THE METRO, WALT METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT, VIRTUAL SOLAR CUP COMPETITION.

WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO REPRESENT YOUR SCHOOL AND YOUR PROUD CITY ON THE CALL WITH US TONIGHT IS STEVE ELI REPRESENTING DIVISION THREE CHINO HILLS ON THE INLAND EMPIRE UTILITIES AGENCY, BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

STEVE, CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THIS CONTEST? SURE.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY, MR. MAYOR? YES, WE CAN.

THANK YOU, STEVE.

EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR THE TIME.

I APPRECIATE IT.

UM, IUA UH, IS AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, A MEMBER OF THE METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT AND, UH, THIS YEAR WE CONTINUED OUR PARTNERSHIP IN THE 18TH ANNUAL SOLAR CUP COMPETITION.

THERE WERE APPROXIMATELY 750 STUDENTS FROM APPROXIMATELY 40 SCHOOLS THAT BEGAN SOLAR CUP COMPETITION, WHICH PUTS TEAMWORK, LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS TO THE TEST.

ONCE AGAIN, IUA PARTNERED WITH THE GREAT CITY OF CHINO HILLS TO COSPONSOR THAT, YOU KNOW, HILLS HIGH SCHOOL HUSKIES, UM, YOU TO COVID-19 THE SOLAR CUP COMPETITION HAD TO TRANSITION TO A VIRTUAL PLATFORM DUE TO THE SCHOOLS, MOVING TO DISTANCE LEARNING AND OTHER COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.

BY THE TIME THE RESTRICTIONS WERE ENTERED THE CHINO HILLS HIGH SCHOOL TEAM THAT FINISHED WIRING, THE ENTIRE ELECTRICAL ARRAY AND THE ART.

HE HAD FINALIZED THE DESIGN FOR THEIR BOAT, WHICH WAS BEING PAINTED.

THEY ONLY HAD ONE MAJOR TASK LEFT, WHICH WAS ATTACHING THE COMPONENTS OF THE ACTUAL BOAT, UM, DUE TO THE SHIFT AND LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS.

THE METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT CREATED SOLAR CUP 2.0 CONSISTING OF 12 VIRTUAL CHALLENGES DESIGNED TO BE COMPLETED AS TEAMS OR INDIVIDUALLY.

SOME TEAMS DROPPED OUT, BUT NOT OUR TUNA WHOLE HIGH SCHOOL TEAM.

THEY STAYED COMMITTED TO THE ADAPTED PROGRAM BY PERSEVERING AND COMPLETING ALL 12 CHALLENGES SUCCESSFULLY.

THEY USE CREATIVITY AND COMMITMENT AND FINISHED FIRST OVERALL WITH A SCORE OF 1332 OUT OF 1300.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THEY GOT MORE THAN THE MAXIMUM BECAUSE THEY COMPLETED EXTRA QUESTIONS ON SOME OF THE CHALLENGES, SOME OF THE EXAMPLES OF THE CHALLENGES THAT THEY SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATED, INCLUDING LABELING COMPONENTS IN AN ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT OF A STANDARD SOLAR BOAT, RESEARCHING THE INNER WORKINGS OF A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL AND THEORETICALLY DESIGNING ONE, UNDERSTANDING THE MECHANICS OF THE MOTOR AND INVOLVING THE ELECTRIC MAGNETIC ACTIONS, PLANNING AND CREATING BLUEPRINTS AND FINANCING A MARINA FOR SOLAR BOATS TO DOCK AND CHARGE GENERAL HILLS HIGH SCHOOL USED A MINECRAFT MODEL OF THE MARINA.

AND THEN THEY HAD TO CREATE A DESIGN THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PLACED IN THE SIDE OF A SOLAR BOAT AND EXPLAIN THE BACKSTORY AND INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN.

THIS TEAM'S BOAT DESIGN WITH CAPTIONED QUOTE, MY DESIGN PORTRAYS THE GREEK MYTH OF SISYPHUS BECAUSE OF THE SIMILAR TO OUR SITUATION, NOT HAVING A BOAT TO FAIL INITIALLY DAMAGED OUR MORALE, BUT THAT DIDN'T STOP US FROM GETTING BACK UP AND REACHING THE FINISH LINE.

YOU KNOW, HIGH SCHOOL HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE PROGRAM SINCE 2015, EACH YEAR.

THEY'VE CONTINUED TO
