The Board

The Colorado River Board of California was established in 1937 to protect California's rights and interests in the resources provided by the Colorado River and to represent California in discussions and negotiations regarding the Colorado River and its management. California's Water Code, sections 12500-12560, provides the legal authoritization for the Board.

Seven counties in Southern California recieve water and hydroelectric energy from the Colorado River. Colorado River water is used for drinking water by over 19 million people in Southern California and irrigates over 600,000 acres of agricultural lands that produce fruits, vegetables,and other crops that help feed our nation's families.
