What Is the Kaweah Water Foundation?

Who We Are

The Kaweah Water Foundation (KWF) was established as a California nonprofit public benefit corporation on October 19, 2020, covering the Kaweah Subbasin region of Tulare County, California, known as the Kaweah Management Zone. The KWF is responsible for compliance with the requirements of the Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long-Term Sustainability (CV-SALTS) Nitrate Control Program. The KWF currently provides residents of Northern Tulare County with free drinking water.

Kaweah Water Foundation Mission Statement

The KWF is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life in the Kaweah Subbasin by implementing programs that provide access to safe drinking water for residents and enhancing the quality of groundwater drinking water supplies for residents in the region.

Early Action Plan and Final Management Zone Proposal 

The NCP requires that all Management Zones in the Central Valley develop a Preliminary Management Zone Proposal that includes an Early Action Plan.  These plans address solutions to nitrate in domestic drinking water wells in the Kaweah Management Zone and describe how well testing and replacement water will be distributed to those whose water source contains high nitrate.
