Kern County has a rich history in oil production, responsible for generating nearly three-quarters of California’s oil production under some of the nation’s most stringent environmental standards. Every barrel of oil produced also naturally generates approximately 15 barrels of water, called produced water.

Cawelo’s produced water is treated by oil producers, filtered and then delivered to Cawelo, where it is blended with other supplies for agricultural use.
