Conservation of Water
8. Are you now employing water conservation efforts? Yes
Description of water conservation efforts The lands served under this license also receive water under the Districts water rights to the Sacramento River. The District continues to maximize the beneficial use of water by implementing numerous water conservation efforts including, but not limited to an extensive recirculation system, automated canal control structures, variable frequency drives at several pumping plants, installation and operation of a Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) System, irrigation scheduling techniques and technologies, water conservation programs for landowners, weed management programs, canal lining, pipeline installation, and educational tools for District staff and its landowners. In addition, the Districts landowners have implemented numerous individual water conservation efforts including, but not limited to land leveling, irrigation scheduling techniques and technologies, varietal changes, crop shifts, drainage improvements, reduced spill from rice fields, and minimum tillage techniques. Furthermore, the District and its landowners have participated in numerous water transfers involving crop idling and shifting, which have resulted in reduced diversions. The total quantity of water conserved during each year is variable and depends upon numerous factors, including but not limited to climatic conditions, hydrologic conditions, District operational practices, and on-farm operational practices. Quantifying the water conserved through some efforts is difficult, and in some cases not possible or feasible due to the complexity of the multiple variables involved. Collectively these measures reduced the Districts need to divert water from the Colusa Drain in 2012. Therefore, the District has claimed credit for conservation based on its 1999 diversions under License 7060, based on the data currently available, was the year of maximum diversion under the License since Water Code Section 1011 was enacted in 1979.
