recharge processes are critical for the Water Cycle to refresh itself via the deposit depends on the watershed's recharge potential. Precipitation recreceived by our watershed must percolate and be absorbed, or else there is no replenishment of our water savings account.
.Recharge functions are impaired by the hardening and paving over of natural vegetation and
draining of wetlands.
.to increase recharge, we must limit impervious surfaces and the wholesale conversion of native vegetation.We must implement stormwater techniques designed to slow, spread and sink water as a deposit into the ground We must protect open space in known groundwater-recharge areas. If site conditions are not conducive to recharge, then we must ensure proper biofiltration of all surface waters prior to their discharge and deposit into rivers, wetlands, lakes estuaries, and oceans.

- Receive = Income
- Watersheds receive water only as snowfall, rainfall, and other forms of condensate such as fog-drip.
- Annual participation is the only true source of income to supply our community's water budget
- Global climate changes are predicted to alter dramatically the frequency, intensity, and type of precipitation that water sheds receive
- Conservation hydrology advocates the adaptive management of water shed lands to optomize rehydration. Implementation enforcing land-use patterns that enhance the receptive capacity of our watersheds in times of excess and in times of scarcity.

Willows have been used in Europe for effluent purification water filtering along with reeds.
I have been observing a varigated willow of a fair size that is covered in new buds.
I will try using them to root a coniferous end from the ponderosa pine tree that fell to the ground wish me luck.
I have some new cypress trees starting to root.
This week in the garlic new bulbils will grow into cloves supporting the garlic plants
original species stock. Variation on year to years to complete to growing into a bulb.
