Last Friday, Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s bill to name Success Dam after Richard L. Schafer, longtime Tule River Water Master, was signed into law by President Trump.
 
Congressman McCarthy released the following statement:
 
“I cannot think of a more fitting way to recognize Mr. Schafer, a leader who has dedicated decades of service to our community, than by naming Success Dam in his honor. It is no easy job to ensure the residents of Porterville, Tulare County, and the Central Valley are able to get the water they need, and he continues to go above and beyond for our community. I want to thank President Trump for signing this bill into law, which will ensure that Mr. Schafer gets the recognition he has both earned and deserves.”
