What Is Water Station?

Our goal is to prevent people from dying of heat and dehydration while crossing the desert areas in the hot Summer months.

Volunteers Ready to Start Installing Water Stations

Water Station is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer organization.

In 2021 we are celebrating our 22nd year of work.


Water Station deploys and maintains Water Stations in the Southern California Desert in the Imperial Valley Desert, Anza Borrego Park and surrounding areas.

You may have seen our characteristic blue, or orange and blue, flags along highway 98 or other parts of the Southern California Desert.

2021 is our 22nd year of volunteer work in the desert!

Please visit the Volunteer Schedule page for a calendar view of upcoming dates.

At this time, we are not accepting new volunteers. In order to reduce risks to the health of our volunteers and to the residents of Ocotillo, we are relying on board members and long-established volunteers to continue maintaining our stations.
