U.S. Bureau of Reclamation presents CVWD with award

Agriculture

Today, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation presented the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) with the John W. Keys III Award for CVWD’s new GIS Crop Reporting system.

The GIS Crop Reporting system utilizes technology to gather data about which crops are grown, the type of water used and the method of irrigation to identify potential water conservation opportunities in the Coachella Valley. The technology has streamlined the data collection process to make it more efficient, accurate and transparent.

Much of this information is compiled in a 27-page Annual Crop Report, which is available on CVWD’s website at www.cvwd.org.

The award, first issued by the Bureau in 2008, was established to recognize outstanding business practices, communication, collaboration and partnering achievement.

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.
