Other Information
The District proposes development of a local Landowner recharge and banking project to provide Landowners within the District with a direct groundwater banking opportunity. Additionally, the District may also bank District water in Landowner recharge facilities, within the project area, to support increased flexibility in meeting water demands, while protecting groundwater levels and quality within the District. Landowners would be allowed to convey Landowner owned surface water, acquired outside of the District, through existing District conveyance facilities, for groundwater recharge and later use. Water conveyed through District facilities would be of sufficient quality to meet existing standards for agricultural water use. The District would not conduct any construction activities under the proposed project.
