CVWD hosted Saturday celebration

Toast To Tap Water

Coachella Valley Water District hosted a “Toast to Tap Water” celebration from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 2.

This is the third year that the district has hosted the open house celebration, held in the education center of the Steve Robbins Administration Building, 75515 Hovley Lane East, Palm Desert. The event coincides with the start of Drinking Water Week, a national designation intended to raise awareness about the benefits of tap water.

The free event will feature water tasting, information booths, and an activity station for children. At 11 a.m., there will be a presentation about water quality by Steve Bigley, director of environmental services for the district.

Reusable water bottles will be given away to participants who take the pledge to make tap water their drinking water of choice. Shaved ice and popcorn will be served at the event.

Again this year, the district held a “Toast to Tap Water” student art contest. The entries will be displayed during the celebration. An awards ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. to present awards in three grade categories.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
