Energy Efficiency Efforts Recognized

 CVWD Makes Energy Conservation a Priority


Each day, the Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) provides nearly 50 million gallons of water to 200,000 people within our service area. Through careful planning, forecasting of demographics, and anticipating water supply availability and demand, CVWD continues to ensure the community has the water it needs.

     The infrastructure needed to support this water demand includes 29 groundwater wells and 34 reservoirs located throughout the service area; all requiring energy. Part of the District’s annual planning for the needs of the community includes identifying ways to improve operational efficiency and effectiveness. By reducing energy requirements and our carbon footprint, CVWD is able to leverage savings while also boosting the performance of our systems.

     Recently, CVWD’s continued efforts were recognized by two industry leaders: the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and Southern California Edison (SCE).

     CVWD is the recipient of the AWWA 2017 Outstanding Energy Management Award for our exceptional energy management in the operation of a water treatment and distribution system. Additionally, Southern California Edison and The Climate Registry presented their 2017 Cool Planet Award to CVWD for leadership in energy and carbon management.

     “The environmental commitment of CVWD does not stop at water conservation but extends to conserving all our natural resources, including electricity,” stated CVWD Board President James V. Curatalo Jr. “I am proud to be part of an organization that continues to do our part in protecting our valuable resources.”
