Recent storms boost year-end recharge totals for 2022

Recent storms and improvements to District facilities led to above average levels of groundwater recharge for the 2022 calendar year. As of Dec. 20, 65,838 acre-feet of water was recharged into local aquifers, providing enough water to serve 212,1437 people for one year.

The recharge totals reflect the amount of snowmelt and rainfall captured by the District into holding ponds so it can percolate naturally through silt and sand into the groundwater basin, where it is stored for future use.
