We are a body of citizens charged with the task of leadership on an issue historically central to the development in Iron County: water.
Since the formation of Central Iron County Water Conservancy District in 1997, we have made great strides in bringing together the available water in the area to promote a stabilized water system. Our work to upgrade faltering water systems, ensure adequate water is available where needed, and that the available water is of the highest quality has helped provide regional stabilization to the water supply.
In planning for the future water needs of the area, we have worked with various engineering firms to research feasibility options for additional means of providing water to the region. We understand the continued need for a reliable source of water and are committed to working from a solid knowledge base toward the regionalization of water to promote more stable, reliable sources.
We recognize the importance of building a regional water infrastructure as the area evolves to urban land uses. A comprehensive, regional water district that can provide regional management of the water basin under an overall ground water management plan is the key to positive community development, and proper management of this limited natural resource.
Our efforts today will shape the stability and reliability of water in the region for future generations.
Our Mission Statement
The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District. (CICWCD) was formed in 1997 to benefit the people and municipalities within the CICWCD boundaries. The District was organized under the Utah Water Conservancy District Act to achieve the following objectives:
- Conserve, develop and stabilize existing supplies of water for the beneficial uses of domestic, irrigation, power, manufacturing, aquatic life, wildlife, and stock watering for the direct benefit of the district residents.
- Develop additional supplies of water for use within both the municipalities and unincorporated areas of the CICWCD boundaries.
- Plan for, finance, design and construct reservoirs, pipelines, water distribution systems, wells, drainage improvements and other improvements necessary to utilize water supplies within the CICWCD boundaries.
- Benefit the municipalities within the CICWCD boundaries by providing adequate supplies of water for domestic, industrial and municipal use.
- Manage and stabilize the flow of water to directly benefit irrigated lands.
