CVWD to welcome public speakers at two upcoming board meetings with COVID restrictions

CVWD Board Room

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) will open two rate adjustment hearings in June for in-person comments with specific COVID-19 prevention guidelines in place.

Although virtual comment remains strongly encouraged, in-person testimony will be allowed at hearings on June 2 and June 8. The hearings will be held in the Steve Robbins Administration Building (SRAB) boardroom, 75-515 Hovley Lane East, Palm Desert.

The June 2 hearing for rate increases in Replenishment Assessment Charges for groundwater producers in the East and West Whitewater River Subbasin Areas of Benefit is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. The June 8 hearing for changes in domestic water service rates will be held at 8 a.m.

Those who want to give in-person testimony must follow these required steps:

  • You must wear a mask at all times and wait outside the SRAB building until it is your turn to provide public comment.
  • When you enter SRAB, you will be asked to complete COVID-19 screening questions and have your temperature taken.
  • If you fail to pass the COVID-19 screening or fail to comply with the guidelines, entry will be denied.
  • If you pass the screening, you may enter the boardroom and give up to three minutes of testimony, then exit the building.
