Groundwater Basin Characterization for the Santa Maria Groundwater Basin (funded by Prop 84 Planning Grant)

The San Luis Obispo County IRWM Region received $1M Proposition 84 Round 2 Planning Grant funding. This funding is distributed amongst the IRWM Plan update and six planning studies, which help to address key planning needs in the county. Of the full grant, $200,000 is funding the Groundwater Basin Characterization for the Santa Maria Groundwater Basin.

 

The purpose of this task is to support critical groundwater basin characterization activities in the Northern Cities and Nipomo Mesa Management Areas (NCMA and NMMA, respectively) of the Santa Maria Groundwater Basin (SMGB). The groundwater basin characterization activities are intended to support development of a groundwater flow model and SNMP for the two management areas. The following tasks are necessary to characterize the geologic and hydrogeologic features of the NCMA and NMMA portions of the SMGB to provide a foundation for developing a groundwater model and a SNMP for the SMGB. Additional detailed study will be required to complete the SNMP and will be conducted in the latter phases of the project. The groundwater basin characterization activities provide interim steps towards a groundwater model and SNMP development. This basin characterization will in turn provide more comprehensive basin data and information for the IRWMP update.
