Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Accounting and Trading Platform
A pilot project advancing sustainable groundwater management
Formed in 1959 by landowners, Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District encompasses approximately 44,000 acres of land with over half being irrigated agriculture. Nearly all of the district's water supplies are recharged into the groundwater aquifer. By replenishing the aquifer, the region is able to keep water levels high and keep pumping costs low.
