Free water workshop offered

Landscape Conservation

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) will hold a free Water 101 Workshop on Saturday, Oct. 3.

The workshop is designed for anyone wanting to learn more about the Coachella Valley's water sources and how to reduce their water consumption during the drought.

Topics include:

  • Reducing water use
  • Desert-friendly landscaping
  • Resources and programs to help you conserve water

Anyone who has received a $50 water waste fine for violation of CVWD's water use restrictions, such as irrigating during the rain or restaurants serving water without it being requested, can attend the workshop in lieu of paying the fine. Attendance does not offset drought penalties for water use exceeding your monthly drought budget.

The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Steve Robbins Administration Building, 75515 Hovley Lane East in Palm Desert.

Registration is not required for this event.

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.
