Cal State Document
This bulletin describes a storage concept which, if incorporated into the State Water Project, would be the first major change in operation of that project since its inception in 1959. Under this concept, ground water basins - in effect, underground reservoirs - would be used to store a portion of the water required by the State Water Project to meet future demand.
