The Resources page includes information for landowners and managers in Suisun Marsh. These include general Landowner Information, Public Notices, Maps, Photos, and Useful Links.
The Suisun Resource Conservation District works with the landowners to provide assistance and guidance on numerous areas of club management. Attached files are useful information and documents for landowners.
Please contact the SRCD Water Managers with any questions:
Diversion Reporting Information
Clubs are required to record monthly water diversions for the calendar years. A supplemental measurement form is required for submission, and a PDF version of the Diversion Reporting Form is listed below. The submission for the forms may be done through an online version with a username and password linked to each diversion reported in an Initial Statement. Contact your Water Manager for assistance as soon as possible. Please see link below for further instructions.
SRCD Alternative Compliance Plan for Diversion Measurement
On 24 June 2015, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 88 into law. This legislation added new measurement and reporting requirements (effective 1 January 2016) for diverters who divert more than 10 acre-feet of water per year including in the Suisun Marsh. The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) adopted emergency regulations to implement these new provisions on 19 January 2016. This new law and its regulations affects all water users required to file a Statement of Diversion and Use in the Suisun Marsh, including those claiming riparian or pre-1914 appropriative water rights. Reporting of water diversion amounts is now required annually, and the past reporting requirement of every three years has been eliminated.
SRCD has been working with the Delta Watermaster to develop an Alternative Compliance Plan for all Suisun Marsh diverters to opt in to by 1 January 2017. The diversion measurement method of staff gauges and floodable acreage will continue to meet regulatory requirements for the measurement of brackish water used to manage Suisun Marsh wetland habitats. If landowners choose not to opt-in to the SRCD’s Alternative Compliance Plan, they may measure their own diversion and report it directly to the SWRCB. Violators will face fines and penalties under the new law.

Managed Wetland Assessment
Interested in Your Club’s Drainage Capacity?
The Suisun Resource Conservation District (SRCD) is requesting your permission for an access agreement to measure elevations of the water control structures, staff gauges, and pond bottom elevations as needed on your duck club. Working in partnership with the California Waterfowl Association (CWA), this year we have received grant funding to model drainage capacity of landowners to meet the 30-day flood and drain objective.
Permission is requested for the period 26 March 2018 to 30 June 2018. Please fill out, sign, and date the brief associated Managed Wetland Assessment Permission Form. We will provide all of the elevation data collected upon request, and this information will be used in the update of duck club management plans. Also, this information will be used to pursue grant funding opportunities for improving club water management facilities and improvements.
Suisun Marsh maps and visual representations of zoning divisions are provided here.
The San Francisco Bay EcoAtlas is a mapping tool for visualizing and storing environmental data and information for the San Francisco estuary. It includes maps of current and historic Bay Area conditions. The maps and tools can be used to create a picture of wetland features on the landscape overlaid with other layers including biophysical characteristics and infrastructure. One tool is a program called Project Tracker, a data entry tool for uploading and editing information on wetland restoration, mitigation, and habitat conservation projects throughout California (also see Science > Restoration).
