Natural Resource Program:  Committed to environmental stewardship through innovation and reuse

The City of Santa Rosa purchased multiple properties, totaling approximately 1500 acres in the Laguna de Santa Rosa. The primary purpose in purchasing the land was for agricultural reuse of the recycled water from the Laguna Treatment Plant. In addition to irrigation, each property has opportunities for enhancing natural resources in the Laguna de Santa Rosa, necessitating the implementation of a Natural Resource Program. The Natural Resource Program aims to balance the use of recycled water to grow food with the need to preserve and promote biodiversity in the Laguna. The four largest properties and some of the management activities are featured here.
