Chromium-6 Stannous Chloride Demonstration Project

The State approved CVWD’s plan for a full-scale demonstration project using stannous chloride treatment for the water system serving Indio Hills, Sky Valley and some areas in and around Desert Hot Springs. The demonstration project is scheduled to begin in August 2017 and results are expected before the end of the year.

If this alternative treatment proves to be a viable solution, CVWD expects to meet the State’s chromium-6 drinking water standard by the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline. The stannous chloride treatment option is substantially less expensive and has less impact to the community and the environment than other methods.
