Document Description
FID is proposing to construct four recharge basins in Fresno County within the boundary of the District. The proposed Project will assist the District in expanding its groundwater recharge efforts. The basins will range in size from 28 to 48 acres (151 acres in total). The project Area of Potential Affect (APE) is identified as 151 acres. The proposed benefits of all four basins includes recharge, new storage of floodwater, providing new habitat for waterfowl and to assist the District to maintain its commitments to the Kings River fisheries management program by providing place for fish management water to be diverted in dry years. These basins are all in a critical location for the District to perform recharge and will capture and use storm and flood water supplies available to the District.
