Who We Are
The Southern California Water Coalition (SCWC) – established in 1984 – is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public education partnership dedicated to informing Southern Californians about our water needs and our state’s water resources.
We recognize the rich diversity of Southern California’s people and cultures and see clearly how we are all connected by the need for a safe, affordable and reliable water supply. We believe that working with and learning from a broad range of people helps us address California water issues more creatively.
For decades, our coalition has brought together people from all over the region and from many different interest groups for productive dialogue and consensus-based solutions. Today, SCWC counts approximately 175 organizations as members. They come from eight Southern California counties ( Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, Kern and Imperial) and include leaders from business, regional and local government, agricultural groups, labor unions, environmental organizations, water agencies, as well as the general public.
