Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) is an innovative groundwater management method used to inject water for underground storage to be withdrawn later when surface water is limited, especially during periods of drought.
South Fork Kings GSA is utilizing California Resiliency Grant funding to carry out an ASR pilot test.
Watch the video below to learn more about ASR, lessons learned from the pilot test, and what to consider when implementing ASR on your farm.
Farmers and the local area are able to reserve water that is available for such a short period of time, and they can store it and use it when it’s a drought season like this year.
