Evaluation of Conjunctive Use and Drainage Reduction Strategiesby Nigel W. T. Quinn, Cornell Univ, United States,
Abstract: Optimal drainage management strategies for control of salt and selenium contamination problems in the San Joaquin Valley of California must recognize subregional differences in groundwater chemistry and aquifer characteristics. Modelling analysis has shown that these optimal strategies involve various levels of surface water use, groundwater use and recycled drainage in combinations depending on the costs of the water and its salt concentration. Conjunctive use strategies are responsive to policy options which might involve increased water prices or the imposition of drainage treatment and disposal fees.
