Butte County supervisors to consider groundwater recharge plan
After sending a letter of intention to the California Department of Water Resources last June to begin collecting flood water, Butte County is looking to set a plan in motion. Butte County Water and Resource Conservation Assistant Director Christina Buck is set to give a presentation about the proposed Recharge Action Plan before the Board of Supervisors during Tuesday’s meeting. According to the item attachment, the presentation will go over the plan’s recharge goal along with recommended actions. Last year, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order to simplify local jurisdictions’ abilities to claim floodwater for groundwater storage. The letter issued by the county to DWR was the first step in coming up with a long-term plan for the county to do just that.
