The proposed project includes diverting and capturing Kings River floodwater flows onto agricultural lands adjacent to the Kings River, allowing floodwater flows to recharge groundwater and increase soil moisture. The project is multi-phased with the intent of eventually obtaining over 16,000 acres of agricultural land to receive flood flows at full build-out. Phase 1 includes construction, would divert 150 cfs of flood flows, and secures permanent year-round flood easements on approximately 375 acres at Terranova Ranch. In addition, the project will obtain permanent seasonal flood easements on approximately 1,125 acres. Phase 2 & 3 (not a part of this project) would eventually divert 500 cfs of Kings River flood flows to agriculture lands located north and east of Terranova Ranch.Total project amount includes State support costs for project implementation.
