Desert Area Utility Coordination Meeting

The Desert Area Utility Coordination Meeting (DAUC) is a quarterly meeting between the Coachella Valley cities and utility purveyors.  The meetings provide an opportunity for cities and utilities to highlight projects of interest throughout the Coachella Valley all at one time to ensure all agencies know about upcoming capital projects in order to minimize impacts to the public and duplicate street work.
