Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District Accepts $287,000 Insurance Refund by Bonnie Woodrome Mar 29, 2018 Member Submitted News Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s (EVMWD) focus over the last several years on increasing employee safety and training and reducing claims has led to special recognition and a refund of $287,237. Representatives of the Association of California Water Agencies/Joint Powers Insurance Authority (ACWA/JPIA) presented a check to the District’s Board of Directors at a recent board meeting. The refund was a partial return of the previous year’s premiums, thanks to the District’s successful efforts to control property, liability and workers’ compensation losses. “EVMWD works hard to protect our assets and it’s nice to realize the benefits for those efforts,” John D. Vega, general manager of Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District said. “By ensuring a safe work environment for our employees and receiving this refund, our customers ultimately benefit from the cost savings.” This achievement supports EVMWD’s mission to provide reliable, cost-effective, high quality water and wastewater services that are dedicated to the people we serve. By saving ratepayers money through safe working conditions, EVMWD is able to ensure a steady water supply and superior sewer service at the most affordable cost now and into the future. EVMWD provides service to more than 144,000 water and wastewater in a 97 square mile service area in Western Riverside County. The District is a sub-agency of the Western Municipal Water District and a member agency of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
