Sharing ideas and resources for successful implementation of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
Recharge Net Metering
Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM) is a novel incentive program that encourages individual efforts to use excess surface water to improve groundwater supply and quality. A ReNeMe pilot program was launched in the Pajaro Valley, Central Coastal California. This short video describes the ReNeM program, how it is run, and the benefits it may provide. From UCTV
This workshop focused on how groundwater can be ‘recharged’ to help better manage and sustain local aquifers. Presentations include:
Recharge: What is it? What is it not? Different types of recharge, snd recharge in the context of SGMA; California’s Flood-MAR (Managed Aquifer Recharge) project: What is it? Where is it happening? How does it work?; and Local recharge efforts: What farmers are doing in Sonoma County to enhance recharge.
Local water managers are considering water markets as a potential approach for achieving sustainability targets. However, water is a non-traditional resource, and water markets need to be designed with an eye toward protecting communities and the environment. Join us for a discussion on groundwater markets and market design. Presented by UCANR.
