The Stanislaus Regional Water Authority

The Stanislaus Regional Water Authority (SRWA) is a recently formed joint powers authority, which includes the California Cities of Ceres, Modesto and Turlock. The Participants are interested in finding and evaluating surface water supply options and facilities to serve municipal and industrial water to the customer within their service areas.

Each of the cities is authorized to develop, obtain, and serve a municipal and industrial water supply, pursuant to California law.

The Participants are working with the Turlock Irrigation District (TID) to develop a Regional Surface Water Supply Project (RSWSP) that will provide a safe and reliable high quality surface water supply for the long-term drinking water needs of each participating city.

The Participants formed the SRWA for the purpose of making responsible decisions related to the development and operation of the future RSWSP.
