IWUA was formed in 1937 as the Idaho State Reclamation Association and renamed the Idaho Water Users Association in 1972 to reflect the broader based mission of serving all water users of the state. IWUA represents irrigation water users, municipalities, hydropower, aquaculture, agribusinesses and businesses interested in the perpetuation of wise water use in Idaho and our nation.
IWUA is known by its effective representation of Idaho water interests. We have earned our reputation for being the source of water information regarding water resource issues in Idaho through our honest and conscientious work.
Idaho's Congressional delegation, it's Governor's office, Legislature and water resource agencies have come to rely on IWUA for straightforward representation on critical water issues.
