Full Description

Don Cameron has been planning and building an on-farm recharge basin storage system for more than five years. The system is comprised of three on-farm recharge basins, each having a
capacity of 50–60 acre-feet of water storage. These basins are unlined, which allow them to function as recharge basins while also serving as storage sites from which to convey on-farm recharge water to surrounding fields. The pictures in this case study were taken during a recent tour of Terranova Ranch in April 2023, and they document the water infrastructure work involved in the construction of this unique on-farm recharge basin system.
