The New Temescal Valley Water District

New Name. Same Great Water.

Nestled in the foothills of the Cleveland National Forest is Temescal Valley Water District, the local purveyor of potable and reclaimed water for residents within the Temescal Valley area. TVWD also provides wastewater collection, treatment and disposal for the Temescal Valley residents, including the Butterfield Estates and California Meadows communities.

Temescal Valley Water District obtains its water from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, who imports it from Northern California. The water is then treated at the Henry J. Mills Water Filtration Plant in Riverside, CA. This water is commonly called "State Project Water" and is one of the highest quality sources of water in the State.

Since it was originally formed as the Lee Lake Water District in 1965, many changes have taken place in the Temescal Valley and in the Water District itself. What was once land farmed for citrus crops is now home to numerous residential communities, businesses and industrial parks. However, the one constant over this period of time has been the local Water District and its commitment to provide personal, reliable and efficient service to its customers.

Riverside County Guide to California Friendly Landscaping

Guide to California Friendly Landscaping

For General Release

Throughout the Country, areas such as Riverside County are facing drought conditions.  As our region continues to grow, water demand continues to increase.  Landscape irrigation is a primary factor in our water consumption practices.  There are practical solutions that we can employ today by designing efficient irrigation systems, selecting water-wise plant species, and explanding our use of recycled water.

Earlier this year, the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance No. 859 with the goal of promoting water-efficient landscaping and irrigation practices.  To further this goal, the Planning Department created the Riverside County Guide to California Friendly Landscaping (Guide) which includes a California Friendly Plant List to assist in the selection of low-water use plants.  The Guide also describes landscape and irrigation standards which will ensure that the finished product contributes positively to the community aesthetic.

The standards contained in the Guide will be applied during the development review porcess for projects within the unicorporated areas of Riverside County.  Riverside County Planning Department staff look forward to working with landscape architects, water agencies, plant nurseries, irrigation designers, contractors, planners and the public to promote water-efficient landscaping practices.

For more information concering this program, please contact Kristi Lovelady at (951) 955-0781.
