Approval of Funding Award under the Water Storage Investment program (WSIP) to Regional San for the Harvest Water Program, for costs associated with providing public benefits: The Program, is a conjunctive use project to store and manage groundwater while improving stream flow, enhancing groundwater-dependent ecosystems, sustaining agricultural lands, and improving regional water supply reliability. Regional San would provide the water source for the Program of up to 50,000 acre-feet per year of Title 22 tertiary-treated recycled water. Water produced from the Program would be used to irrigate approximately 16,000 acres of agricultural lands in Sacramento County near the lower Cosumnes River and Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. The Program water deliveries for irrigation of agricultural and habitat lands serves as an in-lieu groundwater recharge source. Recycled water use, in lieu of groundwater pumping, will increase groundwater elevations in the Program area, which in turn are anticipated to increase flows in the Cosumnes River and support groundwater-dependent wetland and riparian habitats.
