DWR has awarded funding to the OHWD to construct the proposed Groundwater Recharge Project in the vicinity of the Cosumnes River in southeast Sacramento County, CA. Over a 10-year period, the proposed project will use two existing diversion points on the Cosumnes River to flood dormant agricultural fields in the off-irrigation season between the months of November and March when streamflow is high and excess water is available. The proposed project will divert a min of approx 4,000 afy of water in normal years to recharge the groundwater aquifer. The system will be designed to divert and recharge up to 6,000 afy during wet periods when sufficient diversion water is available in the river, using two existing pump houses and pipelines, and installation of two additional pump houses and a conveyance system.
