Agricultural Water Management

The initial development and subsequent updates of the Agricultural Water Management represent substantial efforts by Yuba Water Agency to evaluate its water management, including the development of detailed water balances for the distribution and drainage system of Yuba Water Agency and its customers, the member units and for their farmed lands. Additionally, the agency has evaluated the implementation of the full range of efficient water management practices with respect to its water management objectives and various water use efficiency improvements.

Yuba Water Agency’s Agricultural Water Management Plan was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Water Conservation Act of 2009 and the Governor’s Executive Order B-29-15.
