Part of: Artificial Recharge of Ground Water

Abstract: Artificial recharge of aquifers in the Central and West Coast ground water basins of Southern California is accomplished by the application of water, including reclaimed water, to spreading grounds within the basins. A Joint Agency Ground Water Monitoring Program has been established to assure that the use of replenishment water has not had and will not have adverse effects on the quality of ground water in the basins. The program includes sampling of source waters used for ground water replenishment, and sampling of ground water in the Central and West Coast Basins. An assessment of the monitoring program was conducted. This report presents a brief description of the operations at the spreading grounds and related facilities, the Joint Agency monitoring program, and the results of the assessment.
