This project is currently on hold to pursue higher priority projects.
The purpose of this project is to maximize water conservation by capturing and conveying stormwater from Devil's Gate Dam to nearby water conservation facilities before the flows are lost to the ocean. This project proposes to conserve stormwater by holding a reservoir pool behind Devil's Gate Dam and installing a pump station to divert and convey stormwater to Eaton Wash Dam and/or Eaton Wash Spreading Grounds for post-storm groundwater recharge with a future potential connection to the Arroyo Seco Spreading Grounds. The pump will be installed at the Devil's Gate Dam and water will be pumped out and conveyed through over 26,000 feet of pipeline to Eaton Wash Dam where it can be held for recharge and be sent to the downstream spreading ground facilities.
