Tabulation and analysis of hydrogeologic data from the coastal portion of the "deep aquifer" system of Monterey County, California
The “deep aquifer” designation derives from the history of water resource development in Monterey County. Advancing seawater intrusion, first, in the 180-foot aquifer, and subsequently in the 400-foot aquifer, forced ground water users to progressively driller deeper to find fresh water. The first deep aquifer water well was drilled in 1976. In order to develop an improved understanding of the regional ground water resource, this technical memorandum attempts to integrate all available data on the aquifer systems underlying the 180- and 400-foot aquifers of the Salinas Valley. The available data set for the deep aquifer is scanty. These data are presented with preliminary conclusions based on the data available. The study area is centered on the service area of the Marina Coast Water District (MCWD).
