Document Description
The overall purpose of the Recovery Project is to enhance groundwater management by increasing the District's ability to recharge groundwater in wet years and return that banked water in dry years. Additionally, enhanced groundwater management would benefit agriculture by providing irrigation water supplies in years with limited surface water supplies. The Recovery Project involves the construction and replacement of a suite of 14 wells: nine proposed new wells and five replacement wells. Additionally, conveyance pipelines would be installed to connect these wells to a water delivery system.
