ABOUT THE DISTRICT
Rosedale encompasses approximately 44,000 acres of lands, of which approximately 27,500 are in irrigated agriculture, with an additional 7,500 acres developed in residential, commercial, and industrial.
Unlike many other water districts in Kern County, Rosedale makes very few direct deliveries to customers. Nearly all of Rosedale’s water supplies are recharged into the groundwater aquifer. By replenishing the aquifer, Rosedale can keep water levels high and reduce the pumping costs for recovery of the water low. Rosedale is fortunate to overlie a unique geology that provides for the recharge and storage of high-quality water.
