FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Delta Conservancy Announces Delta Drought Response Pilot Program

From the Delta Conservancy:

To reduce drought stress in the Delta watershed, protect Delta water quality, and improve mutual understanding of agricultural practices and water conservation opportunities in different regions within the Legal Delta, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy, in partnership with the Department of Water Resources and the Delta Watermaster, is announcing the initiation of the Delta Drought Response Pilot Program (DDRPP).

Funds are available to incentivize agricultural water users in the Legal Delta to take actions expected to reduce crop consumptive water use and protect water quality. The program will offer Delta water users a grant of $900 per enrolled acre.

By rigorously monitoring the outcomes and impacts of a variety of actions in different settings throughout the Legal Delta, the Pilot Program will provide data to support targeted water conservation/quality protection responses during sustained and/or future droughts.
