Turnipseed Groundwater Bank, Delano-Earlimart Irrigation District, Tulare County, California

Provost & Pritchard prepared the study for the development of the district´s first groundwater banking facility with the goal to generate as much as 15,000 acre-feet of new supply. Tasks included subsurface geotechnical investigation, source water evaluation, groundwater monitoring network establishment and expansion evaluation alternatives. The project then moved to phased development by converting the existing 80-acre Turnipseed Basin into a banking facility. The design included new recovery wells, monitoring wells, expansion of diversion facilities and connection to existing delivery laterals. Turnipseed Basin was expanded with the development of 80 additional acres of land into recharge ponds immediately south of the existing ponds.
