Coachella Valley Water District will seek input on the District’s draft Hazard Mitigation Plan at a public meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25.
Basically, the plan outlines practices to minimize risks such as earthquakes, wildfires, floods, drought, extreme weather and other hazards that could affect CVWD’s assets and disrupt water service.
Reducing risks to people and property from known hazards is called hazard mitigation. CVWD’s updated mitigation plan looks at known vulnerabilities and those in the foreseeable future.
CVWD staff will present highlights of the draft plan and show how the District helps to make communities more disaster-resilient. Remarks from the public are welcome.
The meeting will be held at the Steve Robbins Administration Building, 75515 Hovley Lane East, and Palm Desert. It will also be live-streamed on Facebook.
