ACWA supports California Governor’s order to increase groundwater recharge opportunities

(UI) — Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) Executive Director Dave Eggerton released the following statement in support of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Executive Order that allows for new opportunities for water agencies and landowners to capture floodwater to recharge groundwater.

“ACWA applauds the Governor’s leadership today in removing barriers to the replenishment of our groundwater resources. By using floodwater to recharge depleted groundwater basins, we improve our resilience during dry years and relieve pressure on our flood control infrastructure. Expanding the state’s ability to recharge groundwater is a commonsense approach and is critical to meeting California’s water supply goals.”
