This video provides an overview of how groundwater and surface water interact, what the implications of these interactions on water resources are, and how water can be more effectively managed if an understanding of these interactions is incorporated. From the American Geosciences Institute.
This workshop focused on how groundwater can be ‘recharged’ to help better manage and sustain local aquifers. Presentations include:
Recharge: What is it? What is it not? Different types of recharge, snd recharge in the context of SGMA; California’s Flood-MAR (Managed Aquifer Recharge) project: What is it? Where is it happening? How does it work?; and Local recharge efforts: What farmers are doing in Sonoma County to enhance recharge.
Gary Petersen, Salinas Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency discusses the sustainability planning process.
We produced this short video as a way to explain what is happening related to the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in the Turlock Subbasin.
The Kings Subbasin Groundwater Tour, held by Self-Help Enterprises and the Kings River Conservation District, provided an opportunity to learn how water - both surface and groundwater - is used and managed by various users of the Kings Subbasin, and how we can address our groundwater challenges and reach sustainability by working together in light of the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).
Bringing groundwater basins into balance will have broad impacts on Valley agriculture in coming years—including taking some farmland out of production. A discussion about the kinds of tools that will be needed to prepare for successful water and land use transitions as the region implements the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
What are the key water challenges facing the San Joaquin Valley, and how can the state and federal governments help support the valley’s efforts to manage water and land resources for long-term sustainability? Ellen Hanak, director of the PPIC Water Policy Center, summarizes findings from a new PPIC report, “Water and the Future of the San Joaquin Valley,” followed by a panel discussion
