Rosemarie is a writer and William is the director of science and technology for the National Ground Water Association and spent nearly 20 years as.

    About the Author. David Carle is a former park ranger and the author of California Natural History Guides about water, fire, air, and soil (UC Press), as well as other books in water history and management, including Drowning the Dream: California’s Water Choices at the Millennium and Water and the California most recent UC Press book is Traveling the 38th Parallel: A Water Line. In California, rural areas’ dependence on ground water is even greater. California has 8, public water supply systems. Of these, 7, rely on ground water, drawing from more t wells. In addition, there are tens of thousands of privately.

PROVISIONAL DATA SUBJECT TO REVISION Predefined displays   Land subsidence from overpumping groundwater in the San Joaquin Valley has been called the largest human alteration of the Earth’s surface. When the last comprehensive surveys were made in , subsidence in excess of one foot had occurred over more than 5, square miles (13, sq km) of irrigable land – half the entire valley.

Groundwater is an important source of water stored in the earth beneath our feet, in spaces between sand, soils, and fractured rock known as an aquifer. Layers of aquifers make up a groundwater basin.

During an average year, California's alluvial groundwater basins and subbasins contribute approximately 38 percent toward the State's total water supply. Dept. of Water Resources: California'S Ground Water: Facsimile: Originally published by Sacramento: State of California, Resources Agency, Dept.

Gleick, of the Pacific Institute, said, “California groundwater was a classic tragedy of the commons.” Now, “the smart farmers are going to get jump on how to manage their water resources under a sustainable set of rules.” This article was originally published by The Bill Lane Center.

Infor the first time in its history, California passed a law regulating the use of groundwater – the resource on which 85% of its population. California’s new Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, which went into effect last year, eventually will require farmers to report their groundwater use, but not until around the year or later.

And even then, the new law requires water officials to keep farmers’ groundwater use secret, shielding gluttonous users from public scrutiny. The California Department of Water Resources has created an interactive map that shows geospatially referenced groundwater levels, groundwater table elevation, and subsidence in California.

The map includes: Groundwater depth below ground surface; Groundwater elevation; Groundwater change in elevation from year to year.

The California Groundwater Association (CGA) is a non-profit organization representing all segments of the groundwater industry in California. Our members include water well drilling and pump contractors, hydrogeologists, engineers, hydrologists, manufacturers and suppliers, government employees and others working in the groundwater field.

Approximately 75% of the irrigated land in California and 17% of the Nation's irrigated land is in the Central Valley Using fewer than 1% of U.S.

farmland, the Central Valley supplies 8% of U.S. agricultural output (by value) and produces 1/4 of the Nation's food, including 40% of the Nation's fruits, nuts, and other table foods.

Agriculture is the practice and science of cultivating soil for growing crops to provide food, fiber, and other commodities and products for people to purchase and consume. Thanks to a unique geography and a dry climate that provides an almost year-round growing season, California is the nation’s leading farm state and one of the world’s largest producers of food and fiber.

Groundwater helped make Kern County the king of California agricultural production, with a $7 billion annual array of crops that help feed the nation. That success has come at a price, however.

Decades of unchecked groundwater pumping in the county and elsewhere across the state have left some aquifers severely depleted.

The Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) program involves sampling community and domestic water supply wells for a variety of historic and emerging pollutants using.

Groundwater is a vital component of California’s water supply. On average, underground aquifers provide nearly 40% of the water used by California’s farms and cities, and significantly more in dry years.

About 85% of Californians depend on groundwater for some portion of their water supply. California’s groundwater law won’t affect all parts of the Valley equally.

A sad truth is that it will hit hardest in places that are most reliant on groundwater and most fragile economically. California's rules around groundwater are still very weak.

Option 2: Regulate groundwater. A second option would be to more tightly regulate groundwater withdrawals. Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground -- Talking Heads By Jay R. Lund and Thomas Harter Groundwater is one of California’s most ubiquitous, widely used resources that is unseen and misunderstood.

Aquifers gather and store water and contaminants from large areas over decades to eons to support many human and ecosystem functions. InCalifornia voters approved financing for construction of the initial features of the State Water Project (SWP).

The project includes some 22 dams and reservoirs, a Delta pumping plant, a mile-long aqueduct that carries water from the Delta through the San Joaquin Valley to southern California. ‎Show Science Friday, Ep Great Lakes Book Club Wrap-Up, California Groundwater.Part 1 - ‎The Great Lakes hold 20% of the world’s surface drinking water, with Lake Superior holding half of that alone.
