Document Description
In order to develop an understanding of the hydroeology of the eastern Turlock Subbasin and to apply that understanding to predict impacts of increased grouindwater use on subbasin groundwater levels and quality, the City of Turlock (on behalf of the Turlock Groundwater Basin Assocation) is proposing to conduct a detailed hydrogeologic characterization of a 115-square-mile portion of the eastern Turlock Subbasin (Project Area). The Project will accomplish the following objective: Develop an updated hyydrogeologic conceptual model for the aquifers and groundwater system in the Project Area * Document changing land use and groundwater use in order to better evaluate land use impacts on groundwater * Revise, expand, and apply a subbasin-wide numerical groundwater flow model as a tool to assist with land use planning and groundwater monitoring and management programs including the CASGEM program (supplementing the current monitoring plan that covers the Applicant's service area), mapping of recharge zones as required by Assembly /bukk 359, and implementation of the Turlock Groundwater Basin Association (TGBA) GWMP.
