The Agricultural Water Conservation Clearinghouse (AWCC) initially addressed agricultural water conservation primarily in arid and semi-arid areas in the Western United States. However, the AWCC has since expanded to include various climates in the United States and across the globe. The AWCC is continuously growing, and its reach continues to multiply. By cultivating this growth, the vision of the AWCC is to include even more water conserving practices in agriculture across the world.
