Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) reminds residents to turn off Irrigation systems for a minimum of 48 hours or until the ground dries following storms bringing measurable amounts of rain.
The District encourages customers who do not already have a residential smart irrigation controller (smart controller) to confirm their eligibility and apply at cvwd.org/rebates. Smart Controllers automatically adjust irrigation times based on the season and local weather data. These smart devices also come equipped with rain sensors. To learn more about programming your smart controller and other ways to reduce water waste, watch the Ask CVWD video series at cvwd.org/AskCVWD.
Emergency water conservation regulations remain in effect and prohibit outdoor water use for spray irrigation during daylight hours, except to check for leaks.
Additional water-saving tips, drought updates, and rebate information are available at cvwd.org/conservation.
