The California Farm Water Coalition was formed in 1989 in the midst of a six-year drought. CFWC was formed to increase public awareness of agriculture’s efficient use of water and promote the industry’s environmental sensitivity regarding water. Learn more about our mission, our members, and our efforts to promote California farm water.
The California Farm Water Coalition Board of Directors has identified three primary goals as part of its mission to increase public awareness of agriculture’s use of water and provide a common, unifying voice for agricultural water users.
- To serve as the voice for agricultural water users.
- To represent irrigated agriculture in the media.
- To educate the public about the benefits of irrigated agriculture.
CFWC is a statewide organization representing a cross-section of California agriculture. Members include individual farmers, public water agencies, including irrigation and water districts, farm-related businesses, agricultural lenders and other agricultural organizations.
CFWC represents regions as diverse as Shasta and Imperial counties, the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys as well as California’s Central Coast and the Southland.
