Coachella Valley Water District receives national budget award

2017-18 Operating & Capital Improvement Budget

Coachella Valley Water District's (CVWD) annual budget document for the 2017-18 fiscal year has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).

CVWD also received the award for fiscal years beginning on July 1 in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, making this the sixth consecutive year to be recognized.

In order to receive this award, CVWD had to publish a budget document that meets GFOA program criteria as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan and a communications device. The GFOA uses a panel of independent reviewers to examine the budget documents of award candidates.

The budget is available for review at CVWD's website, www.cvwd.org. Printed copies are also available for review at the district's Steve Robbins Administration Building in Palm Desert.

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association with more than 19,000 government finance professionals as members throughout North America.

Coachella Valley Water District is a public, non-profit agency serving domestic water, irrigation water, wastewater collection and reclamation services, regional stormwater protection and groundwater replenishment over a 1,000-square-mile area, including parts of Cathedral City to the Salton Sea communities. CVWD is a State Water Contractor and operates the 123-mile Coachella Canal to import Colorado River water to the region. An elected five-member board sets policy and represents the ratepayers.
