Statewide Estimates of Potential Groundwater Recharge

To sustainably manage groundwater resources, it is necessary to know an aquifer’s recharge rate, or the rate at which water is being returned to the aquifer. Understanding an aquifer’s recharge rate allows water managers to know whether more water is being returned to or lost from the aquifer, either by pumping or by natural discharge. Rates of groundwater loss often exceed the rate of recharge due to excessive pumping or drought, which causes water levels in aquifers to drop. [Read more...]
