The TBWP is pleased to announce that Edison International/Southern California Edison has renewed its support for the Tulare Basin Watershed Initiative, specifically for continued coordination of the Tulare Basin Watershed Partnership Landscape-scale Watershed Collaborative formation during 2020-2021.
The TBWP is now working with Ag Innovations and key regional partners to formally launch the effort under a new title: Tulare Basin Watershed Partnership Network.
For more information about this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tulare Basin Watershed Partnership mission and vision is to engage partners, stakeholders, and funders in headwaters to groundwater multi-benefit projects that enhance regional ecological and economic health, agricultural heritage, healthy waterways and wildlife habitat, and abundant clean water for nature and people.
Where We Work
Located in California's southern San Joaquin Valley, the Tulare Basin encompasses portions of Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare Counties. More than 16 rivers and creeks flow from surrounding mountains into the Basin’s small lakes and wetlands, which once comprised the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River, the historic Tulare Lake. The watershed is bounded on the north by the San Joaquin River, on the west by the crest of the Inner Coast Range, on the east by the crest of the Sierra Nevada, and on the south by the crest of the Tehachapi range. This watershed is approximately 134 miles east to west, 163 miles north to south, covers almost 22,000 square miles, and ranges in elevation from 163 feet above sea level at Mendota Pool to 14,505 feet on the summit of Mt. Whitney.
