District Puts Good Use to Surplus Rock and Sand From Basin Cleaning

The San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District’s recent basin cleaning has resulted in a surplus of sand and rock, which Upland Rock continues to sell on behalf of the District.

Staff has also been using the excess supply for habitat uses, and to rock off District property.

Meanwhile, the regular flows this winter season have allowed the Mill Creek soft plugs to operate well, and operations maintenance is ongoing to keep basins working. All diversion canals and levees to continue in full operation. Complete cleaning of many basins will be needed in mid to late fall to be prepared for winter recharge in 2020.
