We sat down with Turlock-area grower Christine Gemperle to learn about her motivation to be a leading figure in the on-farm recharge space
By providing translations, Sustainable Conservation ensures that Spanish-speaking communities, who may be disproportionately affected by water quality issues, can also benefit from the knowledge and practices outlined in our on-farm recharge guidance.
Is the drought over? No, but it’s complicated – so get in touch! We walk you through our work to date on recharge, flood risk and water quantity.
Last year, we introduced you to Mikayla Tran, our 2021-22 GrizzlyCorps Fellow. We’re celebrating the culmination of her time with Sustainable Conservation, a white paper focusing on two comprehensive California water policies and where they can, and should, intersect. Mikayla studied the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and the Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long-Term […]
Our partnership with the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) is the bedrock for expanding our climate-modeling scenarios and tools to four additional watersheds in the San Joaquin Valley (SJV.) We sat down with Kamyar Guivetchi, Manager of the Division of Planning, and Ajay Goyal, Manager of the Statewide Infrastructure Investigations Branch, to talk about […]
As we chart a path for our joint effort to expand our Merced River Watershed study to four additional watersheds in the San Joaquin Valley, we checked in with Water for the Future Program Director Aysha Massell to learn more about why the project is so critical for California’s water and people. Massell gave a […]
Over 600,000 Californians rely on nitrate-contaminated public supply wells for their household water needs. Many others struggle with contaminated groundwater from private, domestic wells – so the numbers are even greater. Recharging groundwater with water quality as a top priority will help the San Joaquin Valley – our nation’s premier farming region – manage through […]
A Vital Resource California’s groundwater – a critical resource in times of drought – is disappearing faster than we’re replenishing it. Our underground savings accounts are tapped, and we face a host of challenges like land subsidence, storage capacity loss and, most importantly, a dwindling water supply for California’s dry times. To address groundwater reliability, […]
