California Farm Water Success Stories series, document how agricultural water stewardship practices are at work on-the-ground, at the farm and irrigation district level. Ten short video interviews offer first-person insights from these innovative water managers. In addition to the success stories, the Pacific Institute and other members of the California Roundtable on Water and Food Supply have launched an Interactive Database and Map which contains more than 30 case studies, including the Pacific Institute’s success stories, and is searchable by location, production type, irrigation method, and stewardship practice.
