DWR, Local Agencies Commemorate Completion of State Water Project’s East Branch Extension


The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and local partners today commemorated the completion of a project to extend the State Water Project’s East Branch Aqueduct to bring additional supplies to communities in eastern San Bernardino County.

The East Branch Extension was designed and built in partnership with the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District and San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency.

In addition to providing direct water deliveries to communities, the extension also will deliver water to groundwater spreading basins to recharge area aquifers. Click here to read more…
