|COORDINATING FLOOD & GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT
|Year of Publication
Recent cycles of drought and flood provide an enhanced opportunity to strengthen the nexus between the flood management and groundwater management communities. Developing a resilient flood system will require decision making that does not just manage the surface water, but rather the dynamic interchange of surface water and groundwater horizontally across floodplains and vertically through the subsurface. The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) prepared this brochure to describe opportunities that improve use of floodwater for managed aquifer recharge (Flood-MAR) to reduce flood risk, increase groundwater recharge, adapt to climate change, and provide other benefits.
