Document Description
The project proposes the installation of six groundwater monitoring wells in the southern and western sections of the Niles Cone Groundwater Basin where brackfish water has been detected and potentially threatens ACWD's Mowry Wellfield. The monitoring wells are necessary for the following reasons: 1) groundwater is a significant source of drinking water in the area; 2) saltwater intrusion is a significant impairment to groundwater quality; and 3) long term monitoring points are required to properly monitor the brackfish water, manage the Niles Cone Groundwater Basin, and protect the Mowry Wellfield.
