Document Description
As the primary regional stormwater agency for the Coachella Valley, CVWD is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the WWRSC/CVSC and several tributary stormwater channels. It is critical that these facilities be properly maintained to ensure optimal hydraulic capacity during stormwater events in order to protect life and property. These operation and maintenance activities include mowing, mulching, grading, tree removal, disking, excavating, dredging, filling, armoring of banks, and water monitoring to allow the WWRSC/CVSC system to operate under optimal conditions per design. CVWD's main objective is to keep all open channels free of vegetation, debris and miscellaneous materials and maintain a pilot channel to ensure the WWRSC/CVSC system can be operated under optimal conditions per design.
