2018 - Status And Understanding Of Groundwater Quality In The Monterey-Salinas Shallow Aquifer Study Unit, 2012-13 - California Gama Priority Basin Project Jan 2019

2018 - Status And Understanding Of Groundwater Quality In The Monterey-Salinas Shallow Aquifer Study Unit, 2012-13 - California Gama Priority Basin Project

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

The study was designed to provide a statistically robust assessment of untreated-groundwater quality in the shallow aquifer systems. The assessment was based on water-quality samples collected by the U.S. Geological Survey from 100 groundwater sites and 70 household tap sites, along with ancillary data such as land use and well-construction information. The shallow aquifer systems were defined by the depth interval of wells associated with domestic supply. The Monterey-Salinas Shallow Aquifer study unit consisted of four study areas—Santa Cruz (210 km2), Pajaro Valley (360 km2), Salinas Valley (2,000 km2), and Highlands (5,250 km2).

The first primary ...

1994 - Hydrogeologic Investigation, Arroyo Seco Cone Jan 2019

1994 - Hydrogeologic Investigation, Arroyo Seco Cone

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

This report presents the findings, analysis, conclusions, and recommendations developed

as part of an investigation to characterize the hydrogeology of the Arroyo Seco Cone area of the

Salinas Valley. The purpose of this investigation is to assess the feasibility of developing a seasonal surface water spreading operation utilizing water diverted from the Arroyo Seco in order to enhance ground water recharge in the area. The goal of a project to store water in the ground for subsequent pumping and use is to increase the yield of the Salinas Basin. This investigation defines the hydrogeologic characteristics of the Arroyo Seco Cone ...


2015 - Preliminary Engineering Design Report For Control Of Non-Winter Drainage At Carr Lake Jan 2019

2015 - Preliminary Engineering Design Report For Control Of Non-Winter Drainage At Carr Lake

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

Landowners at Carr Lake reported increasing issues with proper drainage of the agricultural fields that made up the vast majority of the former lake bed. The primary driver of the study was the recognition that a more complete understanding of the site topography and hydrology is necessary, both to frame the pertinent issues and to identify any measures that may be appropriate to enhance drainage in the ditch system. Therefore the project work plan included two main fieldwork components, topographic survey and hydrologic monitoring. The fieldwork was followed up by data post processing, mapping, and associated supporting analyses.

Work was ...


1997 - Water Resources Data Report, Water Year 1994-1995 Jan 2019

1997 - Water Resources Data Report, Water Year 1994-1995

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Water Reports

California State legislation outlines the objectives and purposes of the Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) and states that the MCWRA is to “carry on technical and other necessary investigations, make measurements, collect data, make analyses, studies and inspections pertaining to water supply, water rights, control of flood and storm waters and use of water both within and outside of the agency ...” The MCWRA is responsible for the managing, planning and engineering of the water resources of the Salinas Valley. This report was prepared in part to fulfill that responsibility.

2002 - North Monterey County Comprehensive Water Resources Management Plan Jan 2019

2002 - North Monterey County Comprehensive Water Resources Management Plan

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Water Reports

North Monterey County experiences severe water supply and quality problems including falling water levels, seawater intrusion, and nitrate contamination. The region is in a significant state of overdraft where current demands greatly exceed the annual level of recharge. Without increased supplies, dramatic changes need to occur to the North County land use pattern to reduce demand. The Comprehensive Water Resources Management Plan combines water conservation, water supply, water quality, and land use actions into comprehensive policy alternatives. It is clear, however, that capital facilities are necessary if the problem is to be solved.

The study area overlies a portion of ...

2001 - Hydrogeologic Investigation Of Salinas Valley Basin In The Vicinity Of Fort Ord And Marina Salinas Valley, California - Final Report

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

This report evaluated the then current state or potential for seawater intrusion in the city of Marina and the former Fort Order area. Groundwater from this area primarily supplied drinking water wells as opposed to agricultural wells. Aquifers evaluated in this study area include the perched zone or A-aquifer, the Pressure 180-Foot Aquifer (180-Foot Aquifer), the Pressure 400-Foot Aquifer ( 400-Foot Aquifer), the Deep Aquifer, and aquifers within the Purisima and Santa Margarita Formations. The I80-Foot and 400-Foot Aquifers are the focus of this study because both aquifers outcrop along the canyon walls of Monterey Bay where they interface with seawater ...
