CVWD construction roundup for December

Posted on December 31, 2020 at 2:43 PM by Diane Carmony

This month, CVWD celebrated the pending completion of the Thermal Mutual Water Consolidation project, which transitions 38 residential properties from a 50-year-old failing well to the CVWD system. 

In a brief ceremony in the neighborhood on Dec. 22, Cástulo Estrada, Vice President of the Board of Directors at CVWD, was joined by Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia for the milestone, turning a ceremonial wheel to mark the demolition of the old well and the transfer to the new system. 

The Thermal Mutual project is part of three projects funded by grant money from the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) as part of the Safe and Affordable Funding for Equity and Resiliency (SAFER) Drinking Water Program. The funding also provided improvements at Westside Elementary School and Oasis Garden Mobile Home Park in Thermal. 

In the Oasis Gardens project, the existing well is being abandoned this month and the project will be complete by Jan. 5.
