On January 9, 1918, Coachella Valley residents voted in favor of forming CVWD, 324 to 49. These forward thinking residents acted to form the district in order to protect and conserve local water sources. Since then, the district has grown into a multi-faceted agency that delivers irrigation and domestic water, collects and recycles wastewater, provides regional stormwater protection, replenishes the groundwater basin and promotes water conservation.
