Cadiz is a leading water solutions innovator, delivering access to safe, clean, affordable water for people.

Who We Are


Located in Southern California’s eastern Mojave Desert, Cadiz owns and stewards 70 square miles of unique property and water resources.


Cadiz offers the most robust set of strategic assets and solutions for solving water shortage in the Southwestern United States. With a strong commitment to water equity, Cadiz combines innovative technologies, unique resources, and industry-leading standards of environmental stewardship to partner in the effort to meet the human right to clean water. We provide solutions that help public agencies ensure clean, dependable water can reach people and communities who need it.


Our mission is to implement innovative water solutions through public-private partnerships to sustainably deliver safe, clean, affordable water to people who need it. We believe water is a fundamental human right and envision a world where water resources are sustainably and efficiently managed to ensure water is available wherever and whenever it’s needed.

New Reality * New Solutions


We face new realities with the extreme swings of climate change between wet and dry years: drought then flood, wildfire then avalanche, low reservoirs then broken levees. Our system was not built to manage extremes.


– Susan Kennedy, Executive Chair


At Cadiz, we recognize the new realities that communities face with climate change, as well as the historic systemic limitations of our water supply, and we believe these problems are solvable. We take a holistic approach to providing solutions to the global challenge around access to clean, affordable water for people, focused on many opportunities to expand access to historically underserved areas.


Our clean water solutions expand water supply, convey water to where it’s needed, store water safe from evaporation, treat water to remove harmful contaminants, and redefine sustainable agriculture. In combination, our solutions address the diverse challenge of our new water reality.

Focused On Providing Water for People…


Clean, affordable water is a human right, yet millions of people in the US have little to no access to clean water. Climate change has exacerbated this challenge, but water access is also limited by wealth, geography, seniority and dated infrastructure that is not reliably managing or delivering water supplies in increasingly unpredictable conditions.


Cadiz is a partner in water equity, providing solutions that help communities secure access to safe, clean, reliable water supplies. We work with public water agencies, local government, labor partners, environmental justice advocates, elected officials and other community leaders to solve today’s water challenges with innovative solutions.


We believe when we work together, we have the power to overcome challenges, build resilience, and ensure access to clean water for people who need it.

…while Minimizing Environmental Impacts


Our utilization of leading-edge environmental innovation is setting the standard for sustainably, and reliably delivering clean, affordable water where it’s needed.


We appreciate the uniqueness of the natural resources we steward and have a history of going above and beyond to ensure they’re managed responsibly. Our solutions are proof it’s possible to provide water for people while minimizing environmental impacts and we lead our industry in this pursuit.


We’re proud to be a leader in sustainable operations by reclaiming water that would otherwise be lost to evaporation; repurposing existing fossil fuel infrastructure for water conveyance; utilizing extensive groundwater monitoring technology to ensure we do not deplete what cannot be replaced; protecting endangered wildlife from the threats of climate change; and actively practicing and advancing sustainable agriculture.
