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.
