"When the well is dry, we will know the worth of water"

District Mission

Mesa Underground Water Conservation District (Mesa UWCD) will strive for the conservation, preservation, protection, and prevention of the waste of groundwater from the Ogallala Aquifer, the groundwater reservoir over which the District has jurisdiction. The District will implement water conservation and management strategies to prevent the extreme decline of water levels for the benefit of all water right owners, the economy, our citizens, and the environment of the territory inside the District.
