The North San Joaquin Water Conservation District Board of Directors declined to vote on a revised final copy of a resolution to de-annex district land and rezone it into the Woodbridge Irrigation District.
The land in question lies between Armstrong Road, Eight Mile Road and the Union Pacific Railroad.
NSJWCD is waiting to hear from WID lawyers before making a final vote.
Project manager Walter Sadler proposed a grant opportunity for the district.
The state has offered grant money to projects related to water conservation. Sadler proposed evaluating grower reaction to recharging the groundwater basin with recycled water.
After tense discussion regarding the pros and cons of recycled water, the board voted 4-1 in favor of applying for the grant. President Joe Petersen voted against applying, on the grounds that the district can’t afford to be distracted by tangents.

Plans are moving along for the Tracy Lake Project, staff of the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District said Monday.
The project will pull water from the Mokelumne River to an area off of Forest Lake Road in Acampo, owned by Dan Leonard, to create a year-round lake. Local growers will use that water on crops while some trickles down to restore groundwater levels in the area.
