New report details potential water management solution

In the face of prolonged droughts and diminishing water tables, a research report sheds light on an innovative solution that could reshape California’s water management landscape.

The report examines the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of shallow subsurface artificial groundwater recharge in comparison to traditional groundwater recharge basins. The research, conducted at the Fresno State farm in 2021-22, indicates that this method outperforms traditional recharge basins in both efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
