Through March, a contractor for Coachella Valley Water District will install new nonpotable water (NPW) pipeline and paving along Eldorado Drive in Palm Desert.
Construction hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Southbound lanes of Eldorado Drive will be closed. Closures are marked and southbound traffic will be rerouted to the northbound lanes where one lane will be open in each direction.
The project will connect four more golf course to the NPW pipeline for irrigation: Bermuda Dunes Country Club, Oasis Country Club, Palm Desert Resort Country Club and Woodhaven Country Club. This will allow the courses to reduce their reliance on groundwater for turf irrigation by using NPW that includes canal water and recycled water, help prevent overdraft of the aquifer, and increase the ability to CVWD to balance the supply of water with demand.
Construction is moving west along Hovley Lane East and is expected to reach the District’s largest water reclamation facility on Cook Street in May.
