The James Groundwater Storage and Recovery Project includes construction and operation of shallow recharge ponds totaling ~1,400 acres, water conveyance facilities, and up to 14 groundwater wells and well pumping plants. Prior to final design of the project, data will be obtained to determine feasible percolation rates for the Project. Operation of the project includes storing water in underground aquifers during times of surplus for later recovery of up to 50,000 acre-feet per year during times of need or to assist with overdraft correction.
The project includes water conveyance to and from the project property using available capacity in any of the canals and facilities that may be available to deliver water to the project property.
It is estimated that ~1,400 acres of the 2,070-acre project property will be used for direct groundwater recharge as part of the project.
