Assembly Member Christopher Ward visits ASTERRA to support their efforts in sustainable water and infrastructure monitoring programs
San Diego, October 13, 2022 – Christopher Ward, a member of the California Assembly representing District 78 which includes coastal San Diego, met with Executive Vice President James Perry of ASTERRA. The important meeting was held Tuesday, October 4 in ASTERRA’s new San Diego office to discuss ways ASTERRA is growing tech jobs in the region and how their technology meets critical sustainability and climate change objectives. Ward was joined by the district director, Ansermio Jake Estrada.
The meeting was part of Assemblyman Ward’s efforts to support companies that are adding jobs to California and supporting green initiatives through technology. During the visit, ASTERRA presented their Recover water leak detection and EarthWorks satellite-based infrastructure monitoring technology and how they efficiently provide critical intelligence. ASTERRA presented an overview of their area projects, a tour, and a demonstration.
EarthWorks identifies subsurface moisture over vast areas of land and is used to monitor infrastructure in large installations such as mines, transportation systems, and dams, preventing major disasters.
Ward was introduced to ASTERRA in July when the California Legislative Jewish Caucus, a mission of 16 legislators, visited Israel with the goal of strengthening political and business ties with the public and private sectors.
“As impacts from climate change worsen in California, ASTERRA is pleased the members of the caucus are pro-actively learning about innovations in sustainability and environmental care to facilitate some of these great ideas,” said Perry. “Our successful projects save energy and protect the community.”
