Water Resources Programming includes:

  • Water management and conservation technical assistance
  • Vineyard irrigation system evaluations
  • Alternative water supply development

"Sonoma RCD provided me with the support and resources to successfully complete several small and large vineyard irrigation efficiency assessments. Improvements from these assessments reduced our expenses significantly. It is a pleasure working with their knowledgeable and professional staff." -Richard Howell, Howell Vineyard Services
