The project involves the installation and modification of wells at nine locations in the Live Oak area of Santa Cruz County.

Project components include: the installation of nine monitoring wells at four coastal locations, the installation of two test wells (and possible replacement of one existing active production well) at one location, and the modification of five existing wells to monitoring wells at three locations.
