Why does my tap water sometimes appear cloudy?
News Image The EVMWD service area is partially served by wells. Pumping water from our local wells can trap tiny air bubbles that temporarily cause water to appear cloudy. While this may impact the water's appearance, it does not affect the water's safety and will not harm household plumbing systems.

New Rate Structure for Fiscal Years 2013-2015
News Image After many years of diligent efforts to maintain stable rates, EVMWD now faces an estimated $2.2 million increase in its costs for imported water from the Metropolitan Water District beginning July 1. The increase, which is affecting water districts across Riverside County and Southern California, necessitated increased rates for EVMWD water and wastewater customers.

EVMWD has initiated many cost-cutting measures to make the increase as minimal as possible. EVMWD has eliminated nine permanent positions and reduced its conservation budget to help offset the imported water costs by $1 million over two years.
