Map of Cimarron RAC Boundries

Current Focus Area

Reducing aquifer decline through water use reductions utilizing conservation and education. Water Conservation Areas and Water Technology Farms are examples of conservation programs and tools that emphasize the need to prolong the aquifer's life while maintaining regional economies. Key incentives include water right flexibilities with water conservation practices.

Guiding Principles

All goals and solutions towards achieving the goals must be flexible. Voluntary, incentive, and market based solutions are preferred measures for achieving the goals. Ensure we do not diminish the economic return for all. Overarching goal is to maintain or grow the region's economy.
