Welcome to the San Luis Rey Indian Water Authority

The San Luis Rey Indian Water Authority, a federally charted government agency, was created by the La Jolla, Pala, Pauma, Rincon and San Pasqual Bands of Mission Indians and ratified in the settlement act.

Operating under public law 100-675, the agency's mission is to ensure that the Indian Bands have a say in the San Luis Rey River Basin's water use and supply.
