A major leak to a recycled water line has caused the closure of all eastbound lanes of Fred Waring Drive between El Dorado and Warner Trail.

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) crews are on the scene and working to repair the leak, which was discovered at approximately 2 p.m.

The 12-inch water line serves recycled water from CVWD’s Wastewater Reclamation Plant in Palm Desert to golf courses and other customers in Palm Desert and Indian Wells. Drinking water service to nearby homes and businesses will not be affected.

It is unknown at this time when the eastbound lanes of traffic will reopen, but preliminary estimates indicate that it could be a few days. Westbound lanes are currently open. Motorists are encouraged to use caution when driving past the construction zone and to avoid the area if possible.

CVWD is collaborating with the City of Indian Wells on the road repairs to minimize the disruption to motorist.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
