Document Description
Project will offset existing agricultural irrigation, landscaping, and non-potable domestic use through capture and reuse of up to 800,000 gallons of water through onsite rainwater reuse and irrigation conservation. This will allow La Casa de Maria to forbear seasonal diversion and use of a riparian water right and dedicate approximately 7 millions gallons of water annually to instream flow, thereby enhancing creek base flows and steelhead trout habitat on the San Ysidro Creek.
