The Agricultural Aquifer Storage and Recovery (Ag-ASR) Program will be implemented within WWD's service area which includes 1,000 square miles of prime farmland on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley within Fresno County and Kings County. With the Ag-ASR Program, surface water from existing sources will be recharged into groundwater aquifers through groundwater wells during times when surplus or supplemental surface water is available, and later extracted by landowners for irrigation when it is needed. The Ag-ASR Program includes the incremental additions of about 20 well conversions per year for recharge with a conservatively high target of 400 operational Ag-ASR wells over the next 15 to 20 years. Most infrastructure is already in place.
