Document Description
In response to the Governor's Executive Order (B-29-15) regarding water management, the Santa Maria Valley Water Conservation District proposes to disturb and break-up the layer of clay within the low-flow channel along a 14-mile stretch of the Santa Maria river from the confluence of the Sisquoc and Cuyama rivers to the East, to the Bonita School bridge in the West near Guadalupe. The project would entail accessing the riverbed with farming or other heavy equipment utilizing discs and/or tines using agricultural methods to rip into and disturb approximately 135.5 acres of the clay laden areas, allowing river water to more readily percolate into the aquifer.
