Chowchilla Subbasin

Description The Chowchilla Subbasin exists within the larger San Joaquin Valley Groundwater basin, as described in the California Department of Water Resources Bulletin 118. The County of Madera is the exclusive GSA for the portion of the Chowchilla Subbasin in the unincorporated area of the County, and not otherwise covered by another public agency. Other GSAs in the Chowchilla Basin include Chowchilla Water District, Triangle T Water District and Merced County.

Sediment Removal Project  The County and Madera Irrigation District have obtained all the necessary permits through the Federal/State Agencies to remove sand/sediment from our Ash and Berenda Sloughs. We wanted to share this with all the farmers so that they have the opportunity to get sand for their needs and at the same time help with this effort and remove the accumulated sand and protect our flood control facilities. An application is necessary. The sand is free.
