Constructed in 1955, Santa Felicia Dam can store more than 88,000 acre-feet of winter runoff from the Piru Creek watershed. This water is then released into the Santa Clara River and is joined by runoff from the Sespe and Santa Paula Creeks. This runoff is replenishes the underground aquifers, and is made available to municipalities, industry, and agriculture. United owns and operates four groundwater replenishment facilities: Piru, Saticoy, El Rio, and Noble. United has put almost 2.5 million acre- feet of water back into the aquifers during the last 40 years -- Enough water to supply the City of Oxnard for the next 100 years.
