Valley Water Agencies Say They’re Prepared To Handle This Year’s High Rainfall

Our above-average rainfall is a concern for several water agencies in the Central Valley. While the high rainfall totals are a good thing, there is the task of how to manage and store all that water. The California Water Institute at Fresno State does just that. They say a valuable lesson was learned during the wet year of 2017. “A lot more of the agricultural entities in particular and even some cities are using a lot of their facilities for recharge this year to get much of that water into the ground,” said Sarge Green, Water Management Specialist.
