    Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to.   Increased oil and gas production in many areas has led to concerns over the effects these activities may be having on groundwater quality.

The aquifers, protected by state law and the federal Safe Water Drinking Act, supply quality water in a state currently suffering unprecedented drought.

The documents also show that the Central Valley Water Board found high levels of toxic chemicals - including arsenic, thallium, and nitrates - in water-supply wells near the wastewater-disposal.

Collection University of California, Davis Pages: by Katherine Ransom and Thomas Harter In California’s Central Valley, many communities depend significantly or entirely on groundwater as their drinking water supply.

Studies estimate the number of private wells in the Central Valley to be on the order ofto(Viers et al., ; Johnson and Belitz, ). Elevated nitrate concentrations in. During dry years, that may be less than an inch in southern California and a few inches in central California. In a soggy, wet winter, some areas (especially on sandy soils) may see over a foot of recharge from precipitation.

For the 10+ million acre Central Valley aquifer, this accounts for a significant portion of natural recharge.

Groundwater in California is very precious, yet what we can withdraw is often contaminated with natural and anthropogenic pollution sources. We have examined the Borrego Valley (BV) groundwater (N = 6 wells) in southern California to understand the source of arsenic and nitrate in some of its groundwater production wells.

The mission of the Association of Ground Water Agencies is to promote interagency. Ground water moves generally northward in the southern part of Shasta Valley and troughward from the east and west, converging toward the Shasta River along the valley axis. At the north end of the valley an eastward-trending divide separates the ground water that moves north to Willow Creek from ground water that moves south to the Shasta River.

Five other aquifers, including California’s Central Valley Aquifer, were “extremely” or “highly” stressed, with some natural replenishment but not enough to Author: Julia Lurie.

Two major developments in California water policy took place after this series was published: in September, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act ofa measure to create a comprehensive groundwater management framework for the state; and on November 4, voters approved Proposition 1, a $ billion bond measure seeking to.

Geological. California’s population has more than doubled over the past 50 years, to 38 million, and competition between farms, industry and municipalities for water has grown increasingly fraught. J Stanford scientists find ‘water windfall’ beneath California’s Central Valley.
