Project: San Ysidro Flow Enhancement and Water Conservation

Description: A grant to the Immaculate Heart Community/La Casa de Maria (LCDM) Retreat and Conference Center for a cooperative project with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), American Tanks & Loomis Tanks, and the California Conservation Corps (CCC) to offset existing agricultural irrigation, landscaping, and non-potable domestic use through capture and reuse of up to 800,000 gallons of water through onsite rainwater reuse, storm water management and irrigation conservation. This will allow LCDM to forbear seasonal diversion and use of a riparian water right and dedicate approximately 7 million gallons of water annually to instream flow, thereby enhancing creek base flows and steelhead trout habitat on the San Ysidro Creek.
