Wastewater Treatment, Mid-Valley Pipeline & Groundwater Sustainability Tour
Wednesday, March 20, 2019
This half-day tour will take you through CVWD’s wastewater treatment plant in Palm Desert where approximately 10 million gallons of wastewater is processed daily. You will learn how CVWD recycles this water through a multi-step treatment process for outdoor irrigation on golf courses and other landscapes.
You will also visit the Mid-Valley Pump Station where water is pumped out of the Coachella Canal to the treatment plant where it is blended with recycled wastewater to supplement golf course irrigation needs. A visit to the Desert Willow Golf course is also included along with a discussion on how they exclusively use recycled water for irrigation.
