CVWD publishes 2014-15 Annual Review and Water Quality Report

Annual Review cover

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has released its Annual Review and Water Quality Report, highlighting water-related issues from the past fiscal year.

Included in the report is the Consumer Confidence Report for 2015, an annual summary of drinking water quality. This report confirms that all drinking water supplied by CVWD complies with state and federal drinking water regulations. CVWD’s highly trained staff analyzed more than 16,000 water samples last year to ensure this quality.

“I’m proud to say that CVWD’s water quality studies and stakeholder collaboration is filling an important role to help water agencies meet California’s new drinking water standards,” said CVWD Director of Environmental Services Steve Bigley. “Anyone who wants to learn more about their drinking water should review this comprehensive and transparent report.”

The Annual Review also includes information on California’s new chromium-6 drinking water standard, the district's work to expand the recycled water program, an overview of the statewide drought, information about the many conservation programs offered by the district, and more.

The report is mailed to customers and distributed at public gathering areas, such as libraries and senior centers. Since 1990, California water utilities have been required to issue annual water quality reports to their customers.

CVWD provides customers the opportunity to opt out of receiving a paper copy of the Annual Review and instead view the report online or receive an electronic copy by email. To sign up for this option for future years, visit

The Consumer Confidence Report and the Annual Review are available on the district's website at
