The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) utilizes imported water for groundwater replenishment at three facilities in the Coachella Valley. CVWD holds entitlements to Colorado River and State Water Project (SWP) water and uses these sources to alleviate aquifer overdraft. To ensure continued water supply reliability, however, investments in the SWP’s infrastructure are critical, along with a strategy to restore the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta’s ecosystem. State and federal agencies and other stakeholders have been working for more than a decade to develop plans to achieve these co-equal goals.
The CVRWMG is a collaborative effort led by the 5 water purveyors and one wastewater agency of the Coachella Valley to develop an Integrated Regional Water Management Plan to address the water resources planning needs of the valley.
The mission of the CVWD Disadvantaged Communities Infrastructure Committee is to secure access to safe affordable drinking water, wastewater and flood control services in historically disadvantaged Coachella Valley regions through strategic planning, funding procurement, needs assessment, and reporting – all in collaboration with community members and stakeholders.
