Acting out of an abundance of caution, Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has canceled upcoming public events and tours until further notice.
The move comes after the Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to approve both a local health emergency and a local emergency in response to the spread of COVID-19, or novel coronavirus.
“We appreciate the public’s interest in our workshops and tours and look forward to rescheduling them in the future,” said Katie Evans, Director of Communication and Conservation for CVWD. “We are acting out of an abundance of caution to help support the efforts to safeguard our community.”
CVWD does not anticipate any disruption to water services in the Coachella Valley. Public areas of CVWD buildings remain open to the public. Board meetings and business meetings scheduled by CVWD for a specific purpose also remain open to the public.
CVWD tours and workshops are advertised on CVWD’s website at www.cvwd.org and on the district’s social media sites.
