Increase In Water Replenishes Groundwater Supply

Thanks to a wet winter, California’s water supply is being replenished. One of the state’s crucial outlets is groundwater. The Kern Water Bank’s uses ponds to soak water into the ground, adding to the supply of groundwater. However, these ponds have been dry for the past six years because of the drought. This year, the two-feet-deep ponds are full again and the groundwater supply is being restored. With the full ponds comes wildlife that utilizes the wetlands. More than 200 species of birds can be found at the water bank.
