CVWD honors local business with conservation award

Commercial water saver award presentation

Coachella Valley Water District’s (CVWD) Board of Directors today honored a Palm Desert business with its Outstanding Commercial Water Saver award.

The award was presented to JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, which recently replaced 890 old inefficient toilets through CVWD’s toilet rebate program. The resort estimates it will save about 15 million gallons of water per year with the new water-efficient toilets that only use 0.8 gallons of water per flush.

"I applaud the Marriott's conservation efforts, they will now be saving water that can be used for drinking water instead of being flushed," said CVWD Director of Communication & Conservation Heather Engel. "I also hope that other businesses are inspired to take advantage of our rebate programs.”

CVWD’s conservation contests are aimed at recognizing and celebrating extraordinary water savers in the community. The contests are divided into two categories to recognize homeowners who have transformed their yards into water-friendly landscapes and commercial properties that have implemented effective water conservation practices.
