In its last public meeting before the June 8 election, North San Joaquin Water Conservation District directors discussed the groundwater recharge, a potential new office site, a grand jury report and Measure C.

The district voted unanimously to begin a process that would enable it to open a small office on Sacramento Street to house district records. The district needs an office because the city of Lodi will stop providing support work for the district as of June 30. The district currently pays $25,000 to the city and for the collection of groundwater charges. To rent and furnish the office and hire a temporary employee from Blue Ribbon Personnel of Lodi would cost the same amount as the district currently pays the city.

    The city of Lodi buys six thousand acre feet of river water from Woodbridge Irrigation district every year. The city pays 1.2 million dollars a year for this water and banks it because, like the NSJWCD, we are unable to use it due to lack of infrastructure.The city's solution---build a forty million dollar water treatment plant to treat six thousand acre feet of water, continue to spend 1.2 million a year for water, plus another two million or so annually to operate and maintain it. According to NSJWCD, the entire city of Lodi uses about 10,000 acre feet of "ground water annually. The rural area around Lodi uses about 160,000 acre feet of "ground water" annually. I do not believe the approved treatment plant and all the related costs can be justified because it will treat less than 5% of the total ground water usage. It will have virtually no impact on the overdraft problem. I Believe it would be way better to pay for infrastructure to deliver river water to agricultural uses and save the 20,000 afa rights of NSJWCD. This would actually reduce ground water over draft.
