Document Description
The proposed project would be executed in two phases: the first phase, the Conservation and Recovery Component (project level evaluation), would capture and conserve the annual natural recharge in the Fenner and northern Bristol Valleys that would otherwise discharge to the Bristol and Cadiz Dry Lakes. The second phase is the Imported Water Storage Component (program level evaluation), and would make up to one million acre-feet of groundwater storage space available, to store water for future withdrawal.
