2000 - Preparing For California's Next Drought -- Changes Since 1987-92 Jan 2019

2000 - Preparing For California's Next Drought -- Changes Since 1987-92

Miscellaneous Documents and Reports

The purpose of this report is to review items that the California Department of Water Resources should consider in near-term drought planning, putting California’s conditions today into perspective with experiences gained in the 1987-92 drought. The report begins with an overview of California hydrology and water supply, then describes conditions encountered in the 1987-92 drought. Changed conditions since that drought are summarized, and their implications discussed. The report concludes with a list of actions that the Department could take to respond to future drought conditions.


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 ...


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.


2001 - Hydrogeologic Investigation Of Salinas Valley Basin In The Vicinity Of Fort Ord And Marina Salinas Valley, California - Final Report Jan 2019

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 ...
