For the 2020 planning cycle, six agencies in the Coachella Valley (Coachella Valley Water District, Coachella Water Authority, Desert Water Agency, Indio Water Authority, Mission Springs Water District, and Myoma Dunes Mutual Water Company) are collaborating to develop a Coachella Valley Regional Urban Water Management Plan (CV UWMP).
The CV UWMP includes a forecast of a supplier’s water demands and available supplies for the next 20 years, and it provides an assessment of the reliability of those supplies during drought. The CV UWMP also describes the programs a water supplier has in place to encourage water use efficiency, and it describes actions a supplier could take to reduce demands in times of constrained supply.
We need your involvement and input. Opportunities include participating in two virtual, interactive workshops in December 2020 and March 2021, sharing input on a virtual community ideas board from December 15, 2020 through January 30, 2021, and/or reviewing and submitting public comment on the draft plan in April 2020. The final document must be adopted by each agency’s governing board and then submitted to the state by July 1, 2021.
