WATER CODE
SECTION 12926



12926.  The Legislature finds and declares as follows:
   (a) Recharge is an effective way to maximize availability of
scarce water supplies throughout the state.
   (b) There are many groundwater basins in the state that are in an
overdraft condition.
   (c) It is necessary for the health, safety, and welfare of the
people of the state that the groundwater basins of the state be
recharged.
   (d) Many of the agencies that have responsibility for managing
groundwater are unable to finance adequate groundwater recharge and
storage programs, and it is in the interest of the people of
California that the state provide financial assistance to implement
these programs.
