Kern Fan Groundwater Storage PROJECT

The Kern Fan Groundwater Storage Project, a joint effort between Rosedale-Rio Bravo Water Storage District (RRBWSD) and Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD), would consist of construction of up to 1,300 acres of recharge basin facilities and up to 12 recovery wells on the Kern Fan Project Properties. The Kern Fan Conveyance Facilities would consist of canals and/or pipelines, pump stations and a new turnout at the California Aqueduct to convey water between the project facilities and the California Aqueduct. Water stored by the proposed project would be recovered when needed to provide ecosystem and water supply benefits.

The proposed project would be operated so that surplus surface water from the State Water Project, Central Valley Project, Kern River, and other available water sources would be recharged and stored for subsequent recovery. It is estimated that the project would be able to recharge and store upwards of 100,000 acre-feet per year.
