Water is a vital resource to so many aspects of life in Iron County. The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District (CICWCD) provides conceptual, physical and logistical solutions to meet existing and future demands placed on this resource. The quality, management and efficiency of water is important to our residents. While keeping a watchful eye on the future, our responsibility is to conserve, develop and stabilize supplies of water for our neighborhoods.
Our purpose in developing this website is to provide an informational resource to our residents, and encourage everyone to seek out accurate information about water, the challeges we are all facing and CICWCD's role in meeting these challenges head on.
