Atascadero Groundwater Basin

 

(For the email mailing list, please scroll to the bottom of this webpage.)

 

The "Atascadero Area Subbasin", DWR Bulletin 118 Basin No. 3-004.11, was subdivided from the "Paso Robles Area Subbasin" (of the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin) in 2016 based on information that showed the Rinconada Fault is a significant barrier to groundwater flow. The Paso Robles Formation makes up most of the water-bearing sediments for both subbasins and the lateral (outer) extents are primarily defined by the contact with the Monterey Shale (bedrock). The boundary between the Paso Robles Subbasin and the Atascadero Subbasin is defined by the Rinconada Fault.

 

In 2015, the State legislature approved a new groundwater management law known as the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). SGMA requires that high and medium priority basins comply with the new law. DWR designated the Atascadero Groundwater Basin as a high priority basin. The map below shows those areas subject to SGMA.

 

 

Interactive Map of Atascadero Groundwater Basin

Welcome to the SGMA Interactive Data Viewer for the Atascadero Groundwater Basin! This is an interactive mapping system to help you to navigate around the Atascadero Groundwater Basin by panning, zooming, or searching for a specific parcel or street address that you would like to locate. There are different map layers that can be shown and superimposed in this interactive mapping system such as boundaries of groundwater basins, cities, roads, SGMA eligible entities, and others by checking the layer names indicated on the left panel layer menu. To search and locate a specific APN or street address on the map:

 

1. Enter either the nine-digit parcel number (APN) including hyphens or the complete street address in the “Search...” bar on the upper right hand corner of the map screen and then click on the search button to locate it. The APN or street address that you just entered will appear on the left panel and a location marker will show up on the map to identify the location.

2. Click on the APN or street address name shown on the left panel layer menu will zoom in to the specified location for a close-up look
