Together, Coachella Valley Water District and Desert Water Agency have replenished more than 330,000 acre-feet of imported water into the Coachella Valley groundwater basin so far this year. That is more imported water than has ever been replenished within a year and is more than will be used this year by all groundwater pumpers, marking a significant milestone in increasing groundwater levels in local aquifers.
Desert Water Agency is hosting a tour on November 1 from 8:00 a.m. to noon. The tour will start at the agency's headquarters (1200 Gene Autry Trail in Palm Springs).
As of this week, Coachella Valley Water District and Desert Water Agency have imported more than 200,000 acre-feet of water for the year to replenish groundwater in the Coachella Valley. The public water agencies expect to put more water into the aquifer this calendar year than will be used by valley residents and businesses.
