APPLE VALLEY – Mojave Water Agency is hosting a talk on the role recent storms played in raising the water levels of the Mojave River, groundwater basins, and wells. Tonight’s workshop if the first of three to educate the public about the local water supply, science, conservation, and sustainability.

In the last 60 days, California upstream reservoirs have gained over 3 million acre feet from the winter storm. This is the equivalent of a foot of water sitting on 3 million football fields.

During tonight’s workshop Principal Hydrogeologist Tony Winkel will be discussing where all that rainwater went after these recent storms that drenched the High Desert

Formerly known as the “ABCs of Water”, Mojave Water Agency updated the series to “Wonders of Water” for 2023.
