"The critical decline in the Eastern San Joaquin water table demands that we stop talking and begin to take positive steps to replenish this dwindling resource. Stockton East Water District is to be commended for their positive action through the Farmington Program.
"North San Joaquin Water Conservation District has also begun a recharge program. Our project is financed from tax funds secured from local growers, following the successful passage of an acreage tax assessment last year. We support Stockton East, and stand ready to work with them to develop further recharge projects in our area."
Fred Weybred, president, North San Joaquin Water Conservation District
