"Greetings from the staff of The Cross Section. In this issue, as in each monthly issue to follow, we shall endeavor to present to you a cross section of the present day activities in the field of Underground Water as an instrument for keeping in touch with the plans and functions of your district."
With those words, HPWD management introduced the first issue of The Cross Section in June 1954.
Now, 64 years later, the newsletter's purpose remains the same: 1) to keep persons informed about the district's programs and activities; and 2) to share information about water and water conservation.
The Cross Section is a free publication, available in either a bi-weekly electronic version or a monthly print version.
