CVWD holds Public Open House

Public Open House 2019

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is hosting a Public Open House event from 9 a.m. to noon on Nov. 16. This event will give customers a behind the scenes look at how the district serves the community.

A ribbon cutting ceremony for the district’s Critical Support Services (CCS) Building will be held at 9:15 a.m. Tours of the building will also be available. The $14 million building is designed and structured to remain operational after a major earthquake and has multiple power backups, which will help CVWD to continue to provide water service to customers after a major earthquake. Construction was completed in December of 2018.

The CSS Building also houses several important district facilities:

  • State-Certified Water Quality Laboratory
  • SCADA Control Room (SCADA is a computer program that monitors, gathers and processes data and interacts with CVWD operations)
  • Emergency Operations Center
  • Information Systems server and radio room

In addition to the ceremony, there will be a service and operations fair with display booths. Each booth will feature a particular function of service or field operation including tools and equipment. Visitors can learn about various topics including:

  • Leak Detection Principles & Technology
  • Water Quality Laboratory & Monitoring
  • The Heart of Wastewater Operations
  • Components of a Well Manifold
  • Water Budgets & Water Budget Accuracy

This event will be held at CVWD’s offices in Palm Desert at 75525 Hovley Lane East with additional parking next door at 75515 Hovley Lane East. For more information call 760-398-2651 or visit
