Does Rancho Water capture rainwater?

The District captures as much rainfall as we can. Heavy rains behind Vail Dam in Vail Lake are later slowly released into large, sandy, spreading basins to help refill the groundwater, just like Mother Nature does. All the other storm water that the District can’t capture from heavy rains makes its way downstream to be used by other agencies along the way.
