About Westside District Water Authority Groundwater Sustainability Agency

When the General Manager of Berrenda Mesa Water District (BMWD) retired in 2010, the General Managers of Belridge Water Storage District (BWSD) and Lost Hills Water District (LHWD) stepped in to co-manage BMWD. In 2011, a Joint Management Agreement was formed to allow for this arrangement. The following year in 2012, the Westside District Water Authority (WDWA) was formed through a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) between BMWD, BWSD, and LHWD. In response to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, Westside District Water Authority elected to become an independent Groundwater Sustainability Agency to represent BWSD, LHWD, and BMWD within the Kern County Subbasin.

Board Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month, at 11:00 am at the Belridge Water Storage District Office – 21908 Seventh Standard Road, Lost Hills, CA 93251
