The Mojave Water Agency has joined CMUA as a utility member, continuing a trend of growing the ranks of the association's water agencies.

Mojave Water Agency's boundaries include approximately 4,900 square miles of the high desert in San Bernardino County. As a state water contractor, MWA is entitled  to receive aup to 89,800 acre feet of water annually from the State Water Project through the California Aqueduct.

Last fall, Mojave  Water  Agency  celebrated  the  groundbreaking  of  its Regional,  Recharge  and  Recovery (R3) project. MWA’s R3 project utilizes aquifer storage capacity in the Mojave Basin to enhance the regional supply of water by recharging local basins using the California Aqueduct and a pipe system to move water to local communities. The project was launched in 2013 with pipelines in Hesperia, Victorville, and Apple Valley.

Mojave Water Agency was formed in 1960 via a public vote. MWA's current general manager is Kathy Cortner. For more information about the agency, visit
