The NCRC&DC is working with Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District in 2015-2017 to install large, landscape-level water conservation systems in the West Sonoma County area.  These large projects are funded in part by the California Fisheries Restoration Grant Program to help restore salmonid fisheries in the north coast.
