Statement of Agency Role
State Water Contractor
The San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency, as one of 29 State Water Contractors and the State Water Contractor for the region, is responsible for operating and maintaining the Project within our service area, and extending it to serve our entire service area from Calimesa to Cabazon.
The San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency is an advocate for the groundwater basins within our service area, including the Beaumont and Cabazon basins as well as lesser groundwater basins. It is our goal to preserve them for current and future generations. In order to do this, we import supplemental water from whatever sources provide the highest quality at the lowest price, including the State Water Project as well as other potential sources. We work with local water retailers and others to manage local and regional water resources in a sustainable manner. We are committed to end groundwater overdraft in our service area.
Water Conservation and Education
We encourage water conservation throughout our service area as a means to stretch our existing resources and help preserve our local groundwater. We consider it our job to educate the public on water issues so that they understand that water is a limited resource in our region.
The Statement of Agency Role was adopted December 4, 2006.
