Tours and class presentations


A tour of Desert Water Agency's Operations Center can answer many questions you may have about water in the Coachella Valley. In addition to fielding your questions, a representative will inform your group as to how we came to be, our functions, where your water supply comes from and the key role conservation plays in our future water supply.tour2

To assure our customers of a secure water supply, tours are limited to our Operations Center and do not include any off-site facilities. Nonetheless, we are sure participants will enjoy their informative visit.
