CVWD currently offers the Customer Assistance Program (CAP). The CAP assists eligible low-income households with their water utility costs. If approved under the CAP, customers will receive a deduction of $10.00* (effective June 1, 2019) on their monthly billing statement.
In order to qualify for the Customer Assistance Program, customers need to complete an application and bring in a copy of either their Southern California Edison or Southern California Gas Company Utility statement. For more details about the Customer Assistance Program, click here.
Sewer system customers are responsible for their sewer line from their property line to the house, which includes the sewer "clean out" and "back-water valve." The back-water valve is installed to prevent any back up sewage in the district system from entering the customer's property. The back-water valve should be inspected and maintained periodically by a local plumbing service to ensure it is functioning properly. Review the Water Vs Sewer Systems Diagram here.
CVWD is changing to monthly billing beginning July 1, 2019 and we are excited to offer this higher level of service to customers.

Each year in the Spring, CVWD publishes a Water Quality Report reflecting the water quality details from the prior you. You can view the Water Quality Report here, or request a hard copy be mailed to you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This report is also known as a Consumer Confidence Report.
The water quality report explains the quality of CVWD water, CVWD's water sources, any detections of drinking water contaminants, and what is being done to correct the situation.
We are pleased to report that CVWD has an unblemished record in supplying our customers with clean, safe drinking water. We meet all standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, State Water Resources Control Board, and California Department of Public Health (DPH).
Refer to our water quality report for more information.
CVWD must notify you by newspaper, mail, radio, TV, or hand-delivery if your water does not meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, State Water Resources Control Board, or California Department of Public Health standards, or if there is a waterborne disease emergency. The notice will describe any precautions you need to take, such as using store bought water or boiling your water. If a public notice is published and distributed regarding your drinking water, please carefully read it and follow the instructions.
Most people get their water from a public water system that must meet health-based drinking water standards. By law, CVWD must inform you if contamination is detected in your drinking water. CVWD must abide by strict drinking water quality requirements before delivering water to customers.
No, CVWD does not add fluoride to the drinking water supply. Fluoride occurs naturally in some CVWD water supplies at an average detection level of 0.33 part per million per our most recent Water Quality Report (2016). This and other information can be found in our water quality report. The water quality report information is comprised of sampling results from raw water sources such as purchased water, canyon water, and well water.
CVWD does not endorse or recommend specific home water treatment units. If, however, you are considering buying a home treatment device because of health concerns (e.g. you have a severely compromised immune system), make sure that the device is certified by the State Water Resources Control Board.
For additional help in picking a unit, visit NSF International, an independent non-profit organization.
The District’s water samples are analyzed by laboratories accredited by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the State Water Resources Control Board.
