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.
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.
