Water quality improvement and water use efficiencies

The project will identify opportunities to improve water quality; reduce erosion and sedimentation and increase water use efficiency in the region. The FRRCD will work in partnership with the SVRCD and other organizations in order to connect with landowners in the project area to install infrastructure to protect and enhance riparian areas; to monitor and improve water quality and to better utilize water supplies in the Upper Feather River watershed.
