CVWD receives Directors Award from the Partnership for Clean Water

Water Treatment Facility

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has received a Directors Award from the Partnership for Clean Water for its report on the district’s largest wastewater treatment plant, the first plant in California to achieve this status.

“This award recognizes the commitment of our staff to complete a comprehensive self-assessment on our largest wastewater treatment plant that included an action plan for improved performance,” said Jim Barrett, CVWD general manager. “This report, which was peer-reviewed, will help prioritize and guide our future projects at the plant.”

Launched in 2016 by the American Water Works Association, the Partnership for Clean Water is a global optimization and recognition program for wastewater utilities.

The program was established as a parallel program to the Partnership for Safe Water, which has successfully helped drinking water utilities optimize performance for more than 20 years.

This voluntary program was established “for utilities, by utilities” to provide wastewater utility staff with the tools and resources needed to comprehensively assess wastewater plant performance and develop plans to improve operations, performance, and efficiency.

Utilities are recognized throughout the wastewater community for their progress through the program’s milestones and optimization achievements. CVWD has successfully completed Phase 3 of the four possible phases for its largest treatment plant and has submitted reports on two smaller treatment plants for Phase 3 review.

A total of 61 utilities have enrolled in the program with six, including CVWD, in the first group to receive the Directors Award. Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has received a Directors Award from the Partnership for Clean Water for its report on the district’s largest wastewater treatment plant, the first plant in California to achieve this status.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
