Quail Valley Cooperative Efforts
In May 2009, the Quail Valley Task Force was formed for the purpose of finding a solution to failing septic systems and sewer overflows in the small, rural community of Quail Valley. Quail Valley is an ethnically mixed disadvantaged community located in the City of Menifee in Western Riverside County, California.
The Quail Valley Task Force is a multi-agency effort by Eastern Municipal Water District, Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District, the cities of Menifee, Canyon Lake and Riverside County. That same year, the Quail Valley Task Force partnered with SAWPA to provide a community bilingual outreach support in both English and Spanish in order to communicate with all of the residents in the area.
A report of this outreach effort and what was learned was included in a report entitled “Quail Valley Water Quality Improvement Project”. The Quail Valley Task Force meets regularly in order to find ways of bringing funding and resources necessary for a sanitary sewer system to the community of Quail Valley.
