welcome United Water Conservation District

United Water Conservation District works to manage, protect, conserve and enhance the region's water supply. Through careful monitoring and management, United maintains the water resources of the Santa Clara River, its tributaries and associated aquifers, in an environmentally balanced manner.

In an average year, United is able to recharge area aquifers with nearly 100,000 acre feet of water. This represents enough water to provide for close to 200,000 families for one year.


         The independent panel of experts assembled to assess the fish passage facilities of the Freeman Diversion Dam released its final report on September 15 and is available below.  The report can be opened by double-clicking or saved to your computer by right-clicking.

VFD Fish Passage Conceptual Design Final Report 9-15-10.pdf

            The Fish Passage Review Panel for the Freeman is made up of seven nationally-recognized experts on fish passage.  It was asked to evaluate current fish passages facilities and develop alternative options for improving passage.  Its work is important to maximize the likelihood that any changes to the Freeman’s structure and its operation will benefit fish.  The work of the panel is an important step in the development of a Habitat Conservation Plan for United Water Conservation District.
