CVWD urges caution during expected storm

With a strong storm expected to impact the area for the next several days, the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is reminding everyone of the potential danger related to flash flooding in the channel and washes.

Even when it is not raining on the valley floor, rain in nearby mountains can result in heavy water flow in a short period of time. Take extra caution near the channel or washes before or during a storm.

A number of roads cross stormwater channels or washes, so it’s important for drivers to understand that as little as one foot of water can cause a car or truck to lose traction and float downstream. Driving can be especially treacherous at night when it’s difficult to determine the depth of water. Drivers should always obey law enforcement-imposed road closures and detours.

CVWD also reminds residents that with this measurable rain it’s prohibited to run sprinklers. Please keep them off for a minimum of 48 hours following the rain to help conserve water
