Founding Members

As the Water Resources Institute was getting started in 1999 and 2000, a number of local water agencies offered to support the WRI financially, providing seed money to recruit a director, to plan and hold our first annual conference, and for other critical programmatic needs. Since that time, other local agencies have joined our original "Founding Partners."

The Water Resources Institute and Cal State, San Bernardino would like to express our sincere thanks to our Founding Partners for their support and for their confidence in us and in our programs.

Founding Partners receive several benefits for their gifts. For information on becoming a Founding Partner of the Water Resources Institute, contact our office at 909-537-7681.

1. Cucamonga Valley Water District, Rancho Cucamonga
