The Mojave River Pipeline extends approximately 76 miles from the California Aqueduct in the Phelan area to groundwater recharge sites along the Mojave River. The large-diameter pipeline project was started in 1996 and completed in 2006 to deliver up to 45,000 acre-feet per year to the Mojave Basin Area to offset growing depletion of native water supplies caused by the region’s growth and the overpumping of groundwater. There are four groundwater recharge basins that have been constructed at Hodge, Lenwood, Daggett/Yermo, and Newberry Springs, in addition to a connection at High Desert Power Project in Victorville.
