Delta Rice Growers Water Recirculation Workshop

A specialized workshop for Delta rice growers is set for later this month and now has CCA approved credits for attendance. The workshop will focus on a new water recirculation pump demonstration, which project organizers say can help reduce water and energy use. 

Organizations presenting during the workshop include:  Fish Friendly Farming, Conservation Farms and Ranches, The Nature Conservancy on their Bird Returns Program and the UCCE’s Delta Crops Resource Management Advisor.

Funding for this new program is through the Fish Friendly Farming Program, Delta Conservancy and State Water Resources Control Board. Information on funding sources for interested growers will be provided.

The workshop is set for Wednesday, August 23 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and will be held at Staten Island, 23319 N Staten Island Rd, Thornton. Additional workshop details including parking information, a map and CCA approved credit details can be viewed here.
