    Flooding Orchards to Replenish Groundwater A UC Experiment in Groundwater Replenishment Strategies

    Flooding Orchards to Replenish Groundwater A UC Experiment in Groundwater Replenishment Strategies

    The long California drought forced many growers to pump groundwater to irrigate their crops. With the establishment of California's Sustainable Groundwater Management Act replenishment of California's groundwater supplies is of utmost importance. To develop replenishment strategies, Professor Helen Dahlke joins fellow UC Davis researchers, UC Cooperative Extension and California farmers to test the impacts of irrigating almond orchards in the winter to recharge groundwater aquifers and to help manage water resources sustainably.
