Almond Board of California is hosting ABC’s Training Tuesdays titled ‘Groundwater Recharge: The Why and The How’ on 2nd February 2021. With potential new restrictions on groundwater pumping under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), managed groundwater recharge in working lands offers one of the most cost-effective methods for bringing basins into compliance by mitigating overdraft and improving water quality. During this training,
experts and growers will walk through factors that should be considered when assessing whether an orchard is a good candidate for recharge. Growers who are actively conducting recharge will also share their experience.
