Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is reminding customers to be wary of possible scams involving people misrepresenting themselves as district personnel.
In the past week, CVWD has received several reports of customers being approached by a company offering to test their tap water. Company representatives have implied they are affiliated with CVWD.
CVWD does not contract with an outside company to test tap water. In addition, all CVWD personnel carry identification. If a customer has concerns about whether a person is affiliated with CVWD or whether work is authorized by CVWD, they can call CVWD at 760-391-9600.
CVWD is committed to delivering high quality drinking water. Water is delivered to customers from wells drilled into the valley’s groundwater basin. Highly trained employees monitor the water system and collect drinking water samples that are tested at CVWD’s state-certified laboratory.
The Coachella Valley Water District 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 109,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
