Upcoming forum to discuss flood water as groundwater recharge

Projects that use floodwaters for recharging and storage of water into an aquifer play an important role in sustainable water management in California, and also provide many environmental benefits. Flood-MAR, which stands for Floodwater for Managed Aquifer Recharge, is a voluntary resource management strategy for using aquifer recharge on agricultural lands and working landscapes, such as refuges, floodplains and bypasses.

At the upcoming 2019 Flood-MAR Public Forum at California State Sacramento on October 28-29, 2019, attendees will learn more about Flood-MAR and its impact on water supply reliability, flood risk reduction, drought preparedness, ecosystem advancement and climate change adaptation, to name a few.

Attendees at the forum will explore innovative solutions, implementation considerations, priority actions, and best practices to develop a robust Flood-MAR network throughout the state.

CDFA supports the sharing of innovative technology for water management through its Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation (OEFI) and works closely with the organizers with the Flood-MAR Forum.

    How about no property taxes on water storage improvements?

    Require permitting agencies to respond within 45 days to permits for water storage or they are automaticlly approved.

    Give tax credits or grants for building water storage that can be released in the mid and late summer for fish. They could be small, even under an acre foot of water storage.
