Welcome to Buena Vista Water Storage District
BVWSD was organized in July 1924 to manage the irrigation and
drainage systems and water rights originally held by Henry Miller and
Charles Lux of the Lux Land Company.
The District controls an average entitlement of approximately 130,000
AF/yr of surface water from the Kern River along with an additional
entitlement of approximately 21,000 AF/yr from the State Water Project.
Due to the abundance of Kern River Water, the Board has allocated
all water necessary for growing crops or other beneficial uses
and encourages growers to use as much surface water as practical.
