Managed Aquifer Recharge
In October 2016, the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC), the Resource Conservation District (RCD) and the Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency (PV Water) started the Recharge Net Metering program. This is a unique 5-year pilot program that provides a financial incentive to landowners in the form of a rebate issued by PV Water for building a managed aquifer recharge (MAR) system on their property.
