Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) and Desert Water Agency (DWA) are reminding residents and visitors to avoid the Whitewater River channel near Windy Point on either side of Interstate 10.

May 6-12, 2018 is Public Service Recognition Week. Since 1985, the Public Employees Roundtable and its member organizations have organized and celebrated Public Service Recognition Week to honor people that serve the nation as local, county, state and federal employees.
Desert Water Agency worked with United Way of the Desert (UWD) to establish Help2Others to help low-income customers pay their water bills. There was a recent update to the program which now allows DWA customers with a demonstrated financial need to apply up to twice in a year for a $50 credit.
