The Desert Water Agency Board of Directors voted unanimously on Tuesday to adopt a map which breaks the service boundaries into five divisions and kick-starts the transition from at-large to division elections.
The approved Map F – one of six proposed maps – will be used starting in the November 2020 election. Until then, all board members will serve at-large representing the entire service area which includes Palm Springs and portions of Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs and unincorporated Riverside County.
A new division map for Desert Water Agency elections is now available for public review. There are six maps (A, B, C, D, E revised and F) that members of the public can review and provide feedback on. A fifth pubilc hearing on this matter will be on July 16 at Desert Water Agency. At that time, the Board of Directors will vote to adopt a final map.
Lots of people are curious about water in the desert. Where does it come from? How is the quality? Is it safe to drink?
Our annual Water Quality Report, now available on our website, answers those questions and many others. It contains a variety of useful information including an FAQ section that answers common water quality questions and sample results from water delivered in 2018.
