Valley residents rely heavily on groundwater for drinking water, and the increasing impacts of drought threaten this critical water source. CWC’s Sustainable Groundwater Program aims to protect the quality and quantity of the Valley's drinking water supply.
Support the formation of effective, transparent, and equitable Groundwater Sustainability Agencies, which will govern groundwater resources.
Reduce further pollution of groundwater with effective regulatory actions and support development of programs for long-term groundwater quality restoration.
