CVWD celebrates 100th anniversary

100th Anniversary board meeting logo reveal

The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) today celebrated the 100th anniversary of the date the district was established in 1918.

To mark the occasion, President John Powell Jr. and Vice President Cástulo Estrada unveiled an enhanced CVWD logo in the board room of the Steve Robbins Administration Building during the regular meeting of the Board of Directors. The logo features a ribbon that celebrates the centennial by incorporating the dates 1918 and 2018.

“As we unveil this logo in recognition of our 100-year anniversary, we acknowledge the astonishing foresight of the Coachella Valley pioneers who established the district and the successive dedicated work throughout the years by district leaders, board members, employees and citizens of this valley,” Powell said before the logo was unveiled. He noted that the election on Jan. 9, 1918 established the district with a vote of 324 to 49.

Also during Tuesday’s meeting, Desert Water Agency board president Jim Cioffi and Outreach & Conservation Manager Ashley Metzger presented a proclamation to CVWD that highlighted the district’s accomplishments and the long history of partnership and collaboration between CVWD and DWA.

“DWA commends the board of directors and the district leadership for planning for the next 100 years,” Cioffi said.

Powell also announced that the new history book of the district, The Story of the Coachella Valley Water District: Making every drop count since 1918, has been published in honor of the anniversary. The book can be viewed and downloaded for free and a limited number of copies are available for sale for $15 at

The anniversary logo will be incorporated into all outreach throughout the anniversary year and a public celebration is planned for the fall. Details will be announced closer to the date of that event.

Note: Photos and B-roll of the unveiling are available to media upon request.
