San Joaquin County and local water districts are trying to convince the city of Lodi to take the water it buys from the Woodbridge Irrigation District and contribute it toward a groundwater recharge project at Micke Grove Park.

The idea is for Lodi to ship the Mokelumne River water it has purchased from Woodbridge, along a Woodbridge Irrigation District canal to an area west of Micke Grove Park, then construct a pipeline heading east to the park, said Ed Steffani, manager of the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District.

    Recharging within City limits is a better option but the water table under Lodi is low enough that water recharged anywhere close to town will create a benefit for the City. And recharging the water anywhere in the county would still be better than recharging the Pacific Ocean.

    Also, do Lodians know that our underground water flows south-west? Any water recharged south of lodi will go to Stockton.Lodi CC needs to recharge north-east of Lodi so Lodi can benefit from the recharge.

    Recharging where near Micke Grove? The new lake is clay lined so water does NOT seep down. The last piece of county owned property was just planted with vineyards.Where is this empty field?
