Seawater intrusion in California coastal groundwater basins.
The primary purpose of this 1975 bulletin was to show, as completely as available information permitted the status of sea-water intrusion, to the end that local agencies could decide where they had to take steps to reverse the condition. A corollary purpose was to show the need for more information on intrusion in certain areas where the situation was particularly critical. The study was undertaken solely to determine the extent and location of sea-water intrusion into coastal basins and to compile an inventory that would assist local agencies in assessing the water supply conditions in their areas. The effort was planned to encourage the formation of a cooperative statewide program to monitor coastal groundwater basins.
