Jeff Perrault says COID wants to pipe some of the canals and line them to prevent leakage, but he says a recent U.S. Geological Survey says these leaky canals supply 12 percent of the water to our groundwater aquifer.

 

"So when you look at well levels that are dropping in our area -- they are dropping for two reasons, one we are pumping more because it is the only source of new water for us and two, stopping the recharge from the canal."

 

For fifteen years, the area has been piping and lining canals to cut down on leakage that has drastically decreased our ground water aquifer levels.

 

This is the only source of new water for the area.
