The Dale Basin Well Owners Association's (DBWOA) bi-annual membership meeting will be held Saturday, November 13, 2021 at 11 a.m. the Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526½ Amboy Road in Wonder Valley.
The Dale Basin Well Owners Association aims to provide a unified and legal entity in all matters related to the Dale Basin aquifer and its well owners' interests. Founded over 32 years ago, the DBWOA is nonpolitical and advocates for conservation measures to protect the natural desert aspects of the Dale Basin Area and preserve its waters from intrusion by outside interests.
Last Spring a working subcommittee was constituted and tasked with reviewing the DBOWA's mission and bylaws, updating its communications and outreach, and a renewed focus on current threats including proliferating illegal cannabis 'grows,' groundwater mining, and the impact of the continuing drought. The subcommittee met several times over the Spring and Summer to prepare its recommendations to the general membership.
Long time Wonder Valley resident and member of the DBWOA Jim Copeland will provide a short presentation on the history of the Dale Basin aquifer and efforts to protect it.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Membership is open to well owners in Wonder Valley for $5 a year (hurry, before annual dues go up!). Please attend and bring your well owning neighbors.
