Are you worried about the drought in Palm Springs?
Many of our clients have mentioned concern over the drought conditions in California. The information on this page should help to alleviate any fears of purchasing property in our wonderful Desert communities.
The Coachella Valley is not in the same dire situation as other areas of the state thanks to:
1. A massive underground aquifer
2. Imported water supplies
3. Recycled water supply
4. A successful groundwater replenishment program and decades of long-term planning.
CVWD is committed to meeting the state’s mandate to reduce water use by 36% by February 2016, or face penalties of up to $10,000 per day.
An important resource regarding this issue is the General Manager’s Message in the 2013-14 Annual Review and the publication “Decades of Efforts Pay Off in Successful Groundwater Management”. We will be happy to forward you this information.
Collaborative efforts by Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) and Desert Water Agency (DWA) have resulted in more than 3.1 million acre-feet (1 trillion gallons) of imported water being replenished into the aquifer since 1973, making the program the most significant tool the agencies have in the ongoing battle against aquifer overuse.
