City's Water System Highlighted by FEMA, ABC10

Recently, Woodland's innovative water systems received both national and local coverage:

In partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Georgetown Climate Center's "Level Up" podcast interviewed City staffers Tim Busch (Principal Utilities Civil Engineer and Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency General Manager) and Matt Cohen (Associate Utility Engineer) for an episode titled "Mitigating Drought with the City of Woodland, CA." 

As part of an ongoing series on California water policy and solutions, ABC10 featured Woodland's Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) wells as one of the leading innovations to combat drought and climate change. 

Woodland's ASR system injects Sacramento River water into the natural aquifer 500 feet beneath the ground in winter, when there tends to be more rain and lower water demand. The system then extracts the water in the warmer summer months when demand is higher. The system "helps maintain exceptional water quality," says Busch, even during extremely dry years such as 2022, while avoiding overreliance on native groundwater wells.
