The USPWCD was established to retain the water rights within the District for the use of the citizens and continues to work, to the extent possible, to maintain local control over the allocation of the water rights within the District.

The USPWCD will vigorously promote intergovernmental agreements to defend against underground or other surface water storage reservoirs, or any conjunctive use concept with the support of other applicable entities, agencies and groups.

The USPWCD intends to establish a management program that will insure equitable distribution of water resources within the District and to procure surface water rights and storage rights at a reasonable cost when available and to cooperate with our sister agencies to bring to fruition a district-wide plan of augmentation to provide necessary water supplies for the citizens within the District.
