About Kings River Conservation District
KRCD is a collaborative resource management agency serving agriculture, business, and residential
communities within 1.2 million acres spanning portions of Fresno, Kings and Tulare counties.
With our headquarters in the heart of California’s Central Valley, KRCD is a catalyst for tangible solutions
in the Valley’s adapting landscape. KRCD’s knowledgeable, experienced, and reliable personnel assist with
a broad range of resource-related programs. With responsibilities in flood control, hydroelectric power
generation, improved water management and efficiency, environmental oversight, and groundwater
management, KRCD’s activities are diverse.
KRCD has been involved in water resource management since its inception in 1951. We take seriously
our role for the Kings River region - preserving the natural beauty, habitat, and quality of life for future
generations to enjoy. We promote efficient water use, collect valuable public data on groundwater conditions
and land subsidence, and maintain river channels and levees for flood control purposes. And in an era with
increasing need to carefully steward water resources for long-term viability of the region’s economy and

and renewable hydroelectric energy to the grid.
Understanding the need for balanced resources management, KRCD has over many years conducted
numerous fishery and wildlife projects on the Kings River’s banks and in the watershed. Environmental
