Document Description
The Kern Water Bank Authority (KWBA) is a Joint Powers Authority formed in October 1995. The KWBA is a public agency that includes several water districts, a water agency, and a mutual water company as its members. The KWBA filed a water right application (Application 31676) in September 2007 with the State Water Resources Board to appropriate additional water from the Kern River when available. The appropriation of water from the Kern River would supplement the water received by the KWBA Participating Members from the SWP via the CA Aqueduct, the CVP via the Friant-Kern Canal, and directly from the Kern River through purchases and transfers.
