State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program
The California Department of Food and Agriculture is pleased to announce the 2015 State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program selection of projects to receive a 2015 SWEEP award.
The State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) helps to implement on-farm water irrigation systems that reduce energy use resulting in greenhouse gas (GHGs) emission reductions and water savings.
SWEEP arises from emergency drought Legislation (SB 103) signed in early 2014 by Governor Brown. The SWEEP funding was reauthorized in 2015 under AB 91, which authorizes CDFA to distribute up to $10 million directly to agriculture operations for eligible projects. SWEEP is funded through the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund and is administered in cooperation with Department of Water Resources and the State Water Resources Control Board.
