How Much Does Stream-Groundwater Exchange Influence Whole-Stream Metabolism In A Small Mountain Stream?, Erin Elizabeth Jenkins Jan 2019

How Much Does Stream-Groundwater Exchange Influence Whole-Stream Metabolism In A Small Mountain Stream?, Erin Elizabeth Jenkins

Civil Engineering Graduate Theses & Dissertations

The open-channel oxygen method quantifies rates of gross primary productivity (GPP) and ecosystem respiration (ER) by employing the diel dissolved oxygen (DO) curve. This attributes stream metabolism to four processes: photosynthesis, oxidative respiration, reaeration, and groundwater flux. Groundwater flux, however, is often assumed to be negligible, which may introduce bias in estimates of metabolism. To investigate this, whole-stream metabolism and groundwater flux were measured in Como Creek, Colorado during the summer of 2018. Results from the BASE (Bayesian Single-station Estimation) metabolism model indicate that periods of anoxic groundwater input result in an overestimation of ER in baseline simulations. These data ...

Ryan Dupont, Joan E. Mclean, Richard Peralta, Sarah Null, Douglas Jackson-Smith

Joan McLean

The aims of the original proposed project remain the same, that is, to test the hypothesis that Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) for stormwater harvesting is a technically feasible, socially and environmentally acceptable, economically viable, and permittable option for developing new water supplies for arid Western urban ecosystems experiencing increasing population, and climate change pressures on existing water resources. The project is being carried out via three distinct but integrated components that include: 1) Monitoring of existing distributed Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) harvesting schemes involving a growing number of demonstration Green Infrastructure (GI) test sites; 2) Integrated stormwater/vadose zone/groundwater ...

1998 - 2030 Land Use And Water Needs Conditions Dec 2018

1998 - 2030 Land Use And Water Needs Conditions

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

Documentation of the methodology and data used to estimate the land use, M&I water needs, and pumped agricultural water under the 2030 conditions. One of the primary goals of the Salinas River Basin Management Plan (BMP) is to meet the agricultural, and municipal and industrial water needs of the Valley under the existing conditions (1995 level of development) as well as, under the future conditions (2030 level of development), while stopping the seawater intrusion and balancing the hydrologic conditions in the basin. In order to meet the 2030 water needs, a reasonable estimate of land use and water use conditions is required.

The major sources used to develop the future land use and water use estimates are as follows: MCWRA Ground Water Extraction Management System; MCWRA GIS Land Use Coverage; Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments and Salinas Valley Integrated Ground and Surface Water Model


1998 - Salinas Valley Water (Preliminary Analysis Of) The Cause And Cost Of Seawater Intrusion Dec 2018

1998 - Salinas Valley Water (Preliminary Analysis Of) The Cause And Cost Of Seawater Intrusion

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

An analysis of the historical cause of seawater intrusion in the Pressure Area of Monterey County. An annual overdraft of groundwater resources near the coast coupled with a seasonal cycle of over pumping created a reversal in the groundwater gradient and associated cones of depression. "Marine intrusion has occurred in the 180-foot aquifer in recent years as a result of overdrafts." (Bulletin 52, 1946, p.27). The only overdrafts on groundwater in the Salinas Valley were in the East Side and Pressure Areas. "There was no shortage of groundwater in the remainder of the basin and no threat of deficiency ...
