Groundwater Storage Projects.  The intended purpose of groundwater storage projects is to maximize the recharge of surface water supplies by canals or basins.  Examples of groundwater storage projects within Alta Irrigation District are the Nebraska Pond (Avenue 464 and Rd. 64) and Dinuba Pond (Road 80 and Avenue 412).

Reregulation Water Storage Projects.  The intended purpose of reregulation water storage projects is to develop a means to temporarily store water to meet changeable water demands.  Examples of reregulation water storage projects within Alta Irrigation District are the Button Pond (Road 108 and Avenue 384) and the London Pond (Road 60 and Avenue 384).

Water Banking Projects.  The intended purpose of water banking projects in Alta Irrigation District is to enhance water efficiency by recharging storm water and uncontrolled surface water supplies and subsequent extraction to meet downstream demand versus delivering gravity-flow water from the Kings River to farm lands at the southwestern portion of Alta Irrigation District resulting in lower delivery efficiencies. The conserved water value is accounted for and used to improve Alta Irrigation District’s efficiency in operating its water system and to mitigate groundwater quality issues especially for disadvantaged communities.   Examples of water banking projects within Alta Irrigation District are the Harder Pond (Road 20 and Avenue 384) and the proposed Traver Pond (Road 44 and Avenue 376).
