Reliable Resources for the Valley

Mission: Responsibly manage the water, energy, and environmental resources entrusted to the District.

The Kings River Conservation District was established in 1951 by a special act of the State legislature as a multi-county, special district formed to manage the lower Kings River watershed, serving all the constituents within 1.2 million acres in portions of Fresno, Kings and Tulare counties.  Flood control, water resource management, hydropower generation are primary responsibilities, as well as watershed and habitat enhancement.  The video to the right focuses on hydropower and highlights the 40th anniversary of the Jeff L. Taylor Pine Flat Power Plant.

Board Agendas

The Board meets regularly every second Tuesday of each month at the District office (4886 E. Jensen) of the Kings River Conservation District at 1:30 pm.
