The dataset contains storm water projects planned in the future throughout California that involve groundwater recharge and direct use. It was used to develop storm water targets for the years 2020 and 2035 per directives to DWR in California Water Code Section 10608.50 (b). Projects included are those proposed to be constructed post 2014. Information from various databases was used to compile the project database.
