Starting today, Oct. 2, a contractor for Coachella Valley Water District will install a new nonpotable water (NPW) pipeline and paving along Warner Trail in Palm Desert. Work is expected to last six to eight weeks.
Construction hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Northbound lanes of Warner Trail will be closed from Fred Waring Drive to Delaware PL. Closures are marked and southbound traffic will be the only through-lane. Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible. Northbound traffic will be rerouted to Cook Street and Washington Street.
The project will allow the expansion of the NPW Pipeline system to maximize the use of recycled water instead of pumping groundwater for irrigation. This safeguards the Coachella Valley groundwater basin for future generations. In addition, it addresses long-term water management goals to maintain water reliability by increasing the supply of recycled water, source substitution, and water efficiency across all customer sectors.
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 stormwater protection, groundwater management, and water conservation. It serves approximately 113,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, primarily in Riverside County and portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
