Delivering high quality drinking water is CVWD's highest priority. CVWD's highly trained water quality staff tests your drinking water for the presence of lead and copper regularly, in accordance with state and federal requirements.
In January 2017, The State Water Resources Control Board, in collaboration with the California Department of Education, announced that any k-12 schools served by a municipality, water district, mutual water company or other public system may request assistance from their water providers to conduct water sampling for lead and to provide technical assistance if an elevated level of lead is found.
CVWD has been in contact with area school district about this new program and will collaborate with any schools that request tests. CVWD does not have lead service lines like the ones that caused problems in Flint, Mich. However, lead may be found in internal plumbing fixtures, such as faucets (pre-1986), including at schools.
