About this collection

The Cachuma Project is one of three large-scale Federal water projects in the region, the other two are the Santa Maria and the Ventura Projects. These seacoast projects capture the seasonal floodwaters that would otherwise waste to the sea.

 

The Cachuma project contains a highly variable Southern California stream for the historically water deficient communities of the South Coast area, including the venerable, old Spanish mission city of Santa Barbara, its smaller, urban neighbors, and 38,000 acres of outlying agricultural lands.

For more information about the Cachuma Project, visit the project web site.
