California drought response as it related to groundwater basins, potential water shortages and gaps in monitoring
A groundwater report as required by Governor's January 17, 2014 Emergency Drought Proclamation (Order Action Number 11) requiring that DWR describe basins with potential water shortages and gaps in groundwater monitoring. Preparing the report entailed compiling and evaluating all available data, including information presented in California Water Plan Update 2013.
Data was compiled and analyzed from the California Statewide Groundwater Elevation Monitoring (CAS GEM) Program, the Water Data Library (WDL) groundwater level database, the draft Bulletin 160 California Water Plan Update 2013, and from well completion reports (driller'S logs) submitted to DWR. The focus of this update was to analyze the available data and identify areas with potential groundwater shortages and gaps.in groundwater level monitoring; water quality concerns were not investigated or directly included in the.analysis.
