Document Description
The Daley Ranch Groundwater Recharge Pond Project (Project) involves constructing a 40-acre recharge pond that would expose sand for percolation at various depths from 6 to 14 feet deep. Approximately 650,000 cubic yards of soil would be excavated and retained on-site. Maximum recharge estimates, based on a full-year operation schedule, would average 12,000 acre-feet per year. Water from existing District sources (e.g., Kern River, State Water Project) would be delivered to the groundwater recharge pond via the existing Main Drain Canal. The Project does not include on-site recovery.
