The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.
DWR has enlarged Crafton Hills Reservoir in Yucaipa, increasing operational flexibility in the East Branch Extension of the State Water Project’s California Aqueduct which conveys water to the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District and the San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The reservoir was topped off late last month at 240 acre-feet, up from its former capacity of 85 acre-feet.
