Dunnigan Groundwater Recharge

The Dunnigan Groundwater Recharge Project, led by Dunnigan Water District, launched in early 2022 as a pilot project with the diversion of about 200 AF from the Tehama-Colusa Canal into Buckeye Creek. The project has successfully expanded to include on-farm recharge and seasonal wetland habitat. The project now plans to recharge 5,000 AF per year into the aquifer and provide 500 acres of shorebird habitat.
