Omochumne-Hartnell Water District

District Overview

Omochumne-Hartnell Water District has historically purchased and managed supplemental water from the Central Valley Project for the benefit of District agricultural users adjacent to the Cosumnes River and Deer Creek. In recent years, however, the number of riparian diverters has decreased. Four flashboard dams that historically supported diversions are now maintained and operated by the District to increase the wetted perimeter of the river to affect greater groundwater recharge. The District is committed to working with the Southeast Sacramento County Agricultural Water Authority to develop an effective management strategy that protects its member’s interests, the resources of the Cosumnes River, and meets the future water needs of the region.
