Umida ag

UmidaAG provides farms with sustainable groundwater management infrastructure. We work thoroughly with each farm to develop a plan to reduce water needs during the growing season, then a strategy to rebalance and recharge the groundwater from excess surface water flow, resulting in more water with less effort and resources. The extra groundwater serves as reserves for disruptions to water delivery. UmidaAG sustainability analysts design groundwater neutrality plans that exceed the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act rules. We are here to guide and advise from the initial interview, to planning and rollout of a groundwater management plan. Visit their website here
