Canal, Agriculture & Replenishment Tour

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Travel with us on this half-day tour to learn how water is monitored and accounted for from CVWD’s Control Room using microwave communication devices and state-of-the-art technology. You will also visit a local farm area where micro-irrigation is used, saving more than 30 percent of water over traditional methods. This tour also includes a stop at a replenishment facility where Colorado River water percolates into the groundwater basin replacing some of what valley consumers have used.
