Desert Water Agency has updated its website to include a new page with information to help Desert Hot Springs residents and others to better understand DWA's role in that community. Our agency proudly serves Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs and unincorporated areas within Riverside County.
We perform water management in these areas and have a water replenishment facility in the Desert Hot Springs area.

Crews began work on Racquet Club Road on Monday, Sept. 10. Construction on nearby streets will follow. These projects to replace old pipelines will improve water reliability and reduce water loss.
Work in the Racquet Club Road area will last through November with the contractor working on one street at a time. During the day as crews work, lanes will be restricted in both directions but the streets will remain open. In the evening and on weekends, the road will be fully open. We recommend residents take other routes and/or allow additional time for traffic.
Pipeline has been successfully installed on Ramon Road between Calle Santa Cruz and El Cielo.
Crews will now focus on finishing touches and road paving which is scheduled for the week of Oct. 8 and Oct. 15. During this time eastbound traffic will be affected most. One or more lanes on Ramon Road should remain open in each direction at all times.
This project will stop excessive leaks and improve water reliability in our community.
Avoid tragedy by finding safe alternatives and avoiding ‘No Trespassing’ areas along river
