Happy computer user

Citing public health recommendations during the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, Coachella Valley Water District is urging anyone doing business with the District to do so by telephone, email or online whenever possible. 

District offices will remain open but the public is encouraged to avoid in-person visits in lieu of other options.

 “While the Riverside County Public Health Office says immediate risk to County residents is low, we are taking precautions to support the efforts to safeguard our community,” said Katie Evans, CVWD Director of Communications and Conservation.

In addition to a wide variety of helpful information, the District’s website  includes a tool bar that gives directions on how to contact CVWD with specific questions.

The District telephones are staffed and answered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call 760-398-2651.

CVWD tours and workshops have been cancelled until further notice, but board meetings and business meetings scheduled for a specific purpose remain open to the public.

CVWD does not expect any disruption to water services in the Coachella Valley.

Information about the novel coronavirus is available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

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.
