The Floodplain Management Association and the Groundwater Resources Association of California are Co-Sponsoring FMA's June Sacramento Luncheon
TOPIC: “Flood-MAR – Using Floodwater for Managed Aquifer Recharge” - With the effects of climate change necessitating wholesale changes in how water is managed in California, “Flood-MAR” presents a sustainable strategy that can simultaneously accommodate longer and deeper droughts, and more severe and frequent episodic and seasonal flooding. Flood-MAR is an integrated water resource management strategy that uses flood water resulting from, or in anticipation of, rainfall or snowmelt for managed aquifer recharge on agricultural lands and working landscapes. Flood-MAR can also be implemented at multiple scales, from individual landowners diverting flood water with existing infrastructure to using extensive detention/recharge areas and modernizing flood management infrastructure and operations.
