Kaweah Delta Water Conservation District (the “District”) is a public agency serving portions of Tulare and Kings County located within the Kaweah Basin. The District’s purpose is to conserve and store water from the Kaweah River and the underground waters of the Kaweah River Basin. To accomplish this, the District investigates and monitors the water resources and demands of the Basin, and manages those resources through collaboration with other local agencies. The District coordinates water usage to ensure residents have reliable and adequate water supply while preventing diminution of natural water flow or of overflow.
The District has existed since 1927, and consists of four different departments: the Engineering Department, Administration Department, River Operations Department, and the Field Operations Department.
