The Project will utilize existing information from the Alta Irrigation District (AID) service area groundwater studies performed through the Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long-term Sustainability (CV SALTS) process to develop informational materials (presentations and handouts) that will be utilized to inform local decision-makers and residents of: 1) current groundwater conditions, potential future groundwater trends, and the regulatory context; 2) nitrate mitigation alternatives and associated costs (based on the Nitrate Implementation Measures Study (NIMS) and Aggressive Restoration Scenarios); and 3) potential funding sources and regulatory tools for project development and implementation. This information is needed for local leaders (water district board members, water system staff, and other stakeholders) to make educated decisions on future capital projects to improve drinking water quality. Furthermore, project financing is a chief concern of disadvantaged communities (DACs). The presentations will include potential project options and financing mechanisms, the goal of which is to encourage local entities to work together in the pursuit of funding for potential Prop 1- eligible groundwater projects that directly benefit DACs.
