Full Description

As a part of DWR’s California’s Groundwater (Bulletin-118) Basin Characterization Program, DWR implemented the Statewide Airborne Electromagnetic Survey Project and have now collected over 15,000 line-miles of data, covering the extent of 78 groundwater subbasins, including the entire Central Valley. The AEM data have been interpreted for material texture (coarse fraction) and can be used to better understand groundwater recharge pathways and identify potential aquifer recharge locations. Under the Basin Characterization Program, DWR is conducting a series of pilot studies to address SGMA-related groundwater questions and the first pilot study focuses on providing information to support floodplain rehabilitation, groundwater recharge, and domestic well assistance activities.
