The City of Woodland relies primarily on treated surface water from the Woodland Davis Clean Water Agency (WDCWA) for its water supply, with augmentation through its Aquifer Storage & Recovery (ASR) program. Woodland’s ASR program improves short-term drought resiliency and long-term water supply reliability by storing high-quality treated Sacramento River water in the underground aquifer when water is abundant (winter) for use during peak demand (summer) or drought. The addition of a fourth ASR well will increase Woodland’s overall injection and pumping capabilities to provide increased reliability of Woodland’s highest quality supplemental source to WDCWA. Currently, the City can store up to 4.5 million gallons of water per day.
