Funds for groundwater projects
The $1 million in WaterSMART grants for the Southwest Groundwater Banking Program comes from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and will allow the Fresno Irrigation District to develop a new 60-acre groundwater recharge basin as part of the District’s Southwest Groundwater Banking Program. This project will enable the FID to capture approximately 4,200 acre-feet per year in flood flows at the new basin site and also allow an additional 1,300 acre-feet of storm water to be conveyed to James Irrigation District to be stored in their existing recharge basin sites.
