#CALIFORNIA #FARMERS TEST WATER STORAGE

California’s record-breaking drought is leading some farmers to test a new water-management technique: flooding. As storms have soaked the state the past few weeks, some farmers and groundwater hydrologists are using swollen rivers to flood agricultural land. Once the land is flooded, often continuously through the winter months, the water seeps into depleted aquifers without harming the wintering crops. (NPR’s The Salt)
