Part of: Artificial Recharge of Ground Water


The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation through its Small Reclamation Loan Program is providing needed Federal financial and technical assistance to water users in Southern California to help ease expected water shortages and quality degradation by developing comprehensive ground water recharge and replacement projects. These projects will develop over 286,000 acre-ft of water annually at an estimated cost of about $247 million. The local water users will pay, upfront, about 32% of this total, with the remainder being repaid in the form of long term Federal loans.
