Stakeholders

Stakeholder input is critical to the development of this IRWM Plan update.  If you have an interest in the sustainability of our community, or if you are aware of a water supply, water quality, or infrastructure need, we want to hear from you!  Visit the Participate Page to see how you can provide input.  Or attend our Public Meetings.

Mojave Water Agency

Mojave Water Agency is charged with ensuring a reliable water supply for today and tomorrow.  Formed in 1960, the Agency is responsible for managing groundwater resources within its boundaries that span some 4,900 square miles that include both the Mojave Basin and Morongo Water Basin. MWA is one of 29 State Water Project contractors permitted to deliver water from the California Aqueduct, and the Agency imports water from this source as needed. MWA strategically invests in infrastructure, groundwater banking, and conservation, to ensure a sustainable water supply. MWA is also responsible for implementing the Mojave Basin Area Judgment, which by court action, adjudicated the rights to produce water from the available natural water supply to better manage groundwater supplies.
