Press Release

Today, Congressman Kevin McCarthy honored Richard L. Schafer, a longtime Tulare County resident and the Tule River Water Master, during a ceremony officially renaming Success Dam in his honor. McCarthy introduced H.R. 2695 in the House – the bill signed into law by President Trump to rename the dam. McCarthy released the following statement:
“Throughout his career, Mr. Richard L. Schafer has demonstrated unparalleled commitment to ensuring that our families and farms in Porterville and Tulare County get the water they need to flourish. Ever since he put down roots in Tulare County nearly 60 years ago, he has remained a pillar of strength in our community. I consider Mr. Schafer a close friend and trusted advisor, and it is only fitting that Success Dam be renamed after him.”
