Crop Consumptive Use in the Delta

With the passage of SB 88, which requires growers to measure surface water diversions for agricultural use, there are efforts among Delta interests to measure crop consumptive water use as a more accurate reflection of agricultural water use compared to measuring diversions. Preliminary project results from a field monitoring campaign and modeling are available from this website.
