Sotoyome RCD Water Conservation and Security Programs
The RCD has a comprehensive set of water conservation programs and resources available to rural residential and agricultural landowners aimed at promoting
voluntary, cooperative water conservation in our district.
- Mobile Water Lab
A mobile water lab for
vineyards will provide free irrigation efficiency checks, recommend
water conservation and water quality improvements and share valuable
technology and information with growers.
- Water Conservation Tools
Sonoma County's Mediterranean climate means that each year we experience periods where water is abundant, and periods where water is scarce. Challenges for agricultural and rural residential landowners in the dry season can be addressed through a number of tools that can maximize water use efficiency, and these tools can be combined for even better results.
- Coho Partnership
In response to the precipitous decline of coho salmon in the Russian River watershed, the
Russian River Coho Water Resources Partnership
is developing a systematic approach to improve streamflow and water supply reliability in five Russian River tributaries critical to the recovery of endangered coho salmon.
