Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has released its Annual Review and Water Quality Report, highlighting water-related issues from the past fiscal year.
Included in the report is the Consumer Confidence Report for 2016, an annual summary of drinking water quality. CVWD is committed to delivering high-quality drinking water. Water is delivered to customers from wells drilled into the Coachella Valley's groundwater basin.
Highly trained employees monitor the water systems and collect drinking water samples that are tested at CVWD's state-certified laboratory.
As an additional public service, the Annual Review also includes valuable information on CVWD conservation programs, groundwater replenishment, domestic and sewer projects including the Chromium-6 Treatment project, and more.
The report is mailed or emailed to customers and distributed at public gathering areas, such as city halls, libraries and senior centers. California water utilities are required to provide annual water quality reports to their customers through printed or electronic means.
CVWD provides customers the opportunity to opt out of receiving a paper copy of the Annual Review and instead view the report online or receive an electronic copy by email. To sign up for this option for future years, visit www.cvwd.org/optout.
The Consumer Confidence Report and the Annual Review also are available on the district's website at www.cvwd.org/annualreview.
