Terranova Ranch Inc. Turns on Expansion Project Pump for First Time
On March 11, 2023, Terranova Ranch Inc. (located in the MAGSA region) turned on their 450-horsepower pump for the first time to take floodwater off the Kings River at the James Bypass at 70,000 gallons per minute. This water would otherwise continue past the Kings Subbasin and create a flood risk to downstream communities. Beyond flood protection, diverting flood water plays a vital role in recharging the region’s groundwater aquifer after an intense multi-year drought.
