Groundwater Guardians

Known internationally for its vast underground aquifers of pure cold water and soothing natural hot mineral water, Desert Hot Springs is serious about its precious resource! 

Since 1995, the Desert Hot Springs Groundwater Guardian Team, a sub-committee of the Desert Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce, has been designated as a Groundwater Guardian Community. Mission Springs Water District became a Groundwater Guardian Affiliate in 1997. And in 2000, Desert Hot Springs High School became the nation's first "Groundwater Guardian Campus."

This community education program is designed to empower local citizens and communities to take voluntary steps to protect its award-winning groundwater resources.
