Ballot measure to decide Board of Directors election process

Ballot measure to decide Board of Directors election process

June 3 is the Statewide Direct Primary and ballot measures include an opportunity for voters within the boundaries of the Coachella Valley Water District to decide how CVWD’s board members are elected. Voters will be asked if they want the election process to be changed to a process whereby only voters living within a geographical division cast their ballots for a candidate seeking that division’s seat on the board.
Successful Groundwater Management

Successful Groundwater Management

Collaborative efforts by Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) and Desert Water Agency (DWA) have resulted in more than 3.1 million acre-feet (1 trillion gallons) of imported water being replenished into the aquifer since 1973, making the program the most significant tool the agencies have in the ongoing battle against aquifer overdraft.

In response to statewide drought

In response to statewide drought

In response to Gov. Jerry Brown's State of Emergency declaration due to the statewide drought, CVWD reminds residents of the many ways they can reduce water use. For more information, read our news release or visit the Conservation page for ideas on how to save water. Read the Governor’s news release and official proclamation
Water Quality Page

Drinking Water

The California Department of Public Health recently released the nation’s first draft Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for chromium-6 in drinking water. Chromium-6 occurs naturally in Coachella Valley groundwater. If the state’s proposed limit is adopted, approximately half the drinking water CVWD delivers is expected to be above this new standard. The cost to design, construct and maintain new treatment facilities to meet the standard could raise water rates by as much as $50 per month, according to preliminary estimates. See our comments to the State. More information about water quality can be found on our Water Quality page.
