Abstract: For more than 60 years United Water Conservation District and its predecessor district have recharged seven ground water basins in Ventura County, California with more than 2,500,000 acre feet of runoff water to maintain ground water levels and quality, and control sea water intrusion. The District operates a 90,000 acre foot reservoir; a hydroelectric generating plant; three spreading grounds; a river diversion structure; a well field, reservoir, booster plant, and pipeline for municipal and industrial water; an irrigation water pipeline and regulating reservoir; and a surface and ground water system to retard seawater intrusion.
