Conservation of Water
8. Are you now employing water conservation efforts? Yes
Description of water conservation efforts In 2011 Sutter Mutual Water Company delivered water to 43,649 acres of mixed crop types under Licenses 2817, 2818, 2819, 2820a, 2822, 552, 1110, 547, 657, 882, 2240, 2821, 2823, 4562, 8547a, and 8220. The Companys objective is to maximize the beneficial use of water by implementing numerous water conservation efforts including 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 Company staff and its landowners. The Companys landowners have implemented numerous 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. In addition, the Company operates an extensive tail water recovery and recirculation system. The quantity of water conserved through the actions taken by individual landowners and farmers has not been determined. The quantity of conserved water shown below is the total quantity of water re-circulated for redelivery within the places of use. Absent the Companys recirculation this additional quantity of water would have been diverted to meet the demands within the Company. It is not possible to distinguish how much of the re-circulated water originated under the individual licenses; therefore, this quantity of conserved water is identified under each of the Companys Licenses identified above.
