- Whitewater River Groundwater Replenishment Project
- CVWD is requesting a right-of-way (ROW) grant from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the continued operation and maintenance of CVWD's existing Whitewater River Groundwater Replenishment Facility (Facility). Since the early 1900's, CVWD has been replenishing the Coachella Valley Groundwater Basin (Basin) in Whitewater with natural flow, snow melt, and beginning in 1973 with imported water as part of cooperative program with the Desert Water Agency. The Facility is a critical component for management of the Basin. The Facility is located on CVWD-owned lands as well as public land managed by the BLM. CVWD's existing ROW grants with the BLM have expired, and CVWD has applied to renew and amend the ROW grants.
