Reclamation Plant

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) today announced its participation as a Charter Subscriber of the Partnership for Clean Water, a new voluntary initiative that seeks to help wastewater utilities optimize the operations, performance, and efficiency of their treatment facilities.

Participation as a Partnership for Clean Water Charter Subscriber identifies CVWD as part of a select group of utilities that has made the commitment to improve wastewater treatment performance using the program’s rigorous self-assessment and optimization process.

“I’m proud to announce that CVWD is committed to being a national leader in this field by becoming one of the first utilities to participate in this process,” said Assistant General Manager Robert Cheng. “This program will allow the District to better serve its ratepayers by saving money through improving process efficiency in its six wastewater treatment plant operations.”

After working closely with AWWA staff for over a year on the program design, Cheng announced the official launch of CVWD’s participation nationally at the 2016 American Water Works Association Annual Conference and Exposition today in Chicago.

Developed by the American Water Works Association (AWWA), in collaboration with the other industry organizations, the Partnership for Clean Water is a global optimization and recognition program for wastewater utilities. As members of the Partnership for Clean Water, utilities pledge to their communities to continually improve operational efficiency and water quality performance.

CVWD is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.

The Partnership for Clean Water is a voluntary optimization and recognition program for wastewater utilities. With an initial focus on wastewater treatment plant optimization, program subscribers are committed to the Partnership’s goals of improving water quality performance and process efficiency through achieving operational excellence in wastewater treatment. Partnership for Clean Water subscribers participate in a rigorous four-phase self-assessment and peer review process, developed by industry experts, and are recognized industry-wide for their commitment to wastewater utility optimization.
