Recharge operations will cease at any time if there is athreat of floodig in and out around this area, or at the request of SJAFCA.

Required improvements would include the addition of a board to the existing Mosher Slough Dam owned by Woodbridge Irrigation District, grading the bottom of the Basin, and the possible installation of a temporary pump along Mosher Slough at the Detention Basin.
