In developing arid basins in the southwestern United States, the availability of suitable water supplies is of critical importance. Scarcity of dependable, perennial streams and rivers dictates a dependence on ground water. Additionally, spatially and temporally distributed hydrologic data in the Southwest are typically scarce, and only rough approximations are possible for basin recharge. This paper documents recharge estimates made for Lanfair Valley which is located in the eastern San Bernardino County, California.
