L. Miller et al. Submitted to File Size: 5MB.   Winter rains and summer groundwater pumping in California's Central Valley make the Sierra Nevada and Coast Mountain Ranges sink and rise by a few millimeters each year, creating stress on the.

    The Central Valley encompasses an approxim square-kilometer region of California. The complex hydrologic system of the Central Valley is simulated using the USGS numerical modeling code MODFLOW-FMP (Schmid and others, ). This simulation is referred to here as the CVHM (Faunt, ). In the Central Valley, wetlands—partly or seasonally saturated land that supports aquatic life and distinct ecosystems— provide critical habitat for a variety of wildlife. However, water flows essential to sustaining these wetland ecosystems have been altered by many water and land use projects including the Central Valley Project (CVP).

Current Conditions ( sites) Current conditions at selected sites based on the most recent data from on-site automated recording equipment. Measurements are commonly recorded at a fixed interval of to minutes and transmitted to the USGS every hour.

Central Valley Groundwater Availability The Central Valley study is one of 30 regional aquifer studies the USGS is conducting to assess the Nation's groundwater availability.

Intense competition for groundwater resources in California was an important factor in choosing the Central Valley as one of the first studies undertaken and completed. Central Valley in California, with an area of ~52, km 2, includes one of the world's largest and yet most stressed aquifer‐systems (Famiglietti, ; Richey et al., ).

The cultivation of more than different types of crops in the Central Valley claims ~75% of California's groundwater supply (Lassiter, ; Maupin et al., ).Cited by:   The Central Valley in California (USA) covers ab km2 and is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world.

This agriculture relies heavily on surface-water diversions and groundwater pumpage to meet irrigation water demand. Because the valley is semi-arid and surface-water availability varies substantially, agriculture relies heavily on Cited by: The occurrence of selenium in agricultural drain water derived from the western San Joaquin Valley, California, has focused concern on the ground-water flow system of the western valley.

In this investigation, previous work and recently collected texture and water-level data are used to evaluate the character and evolution of the regional ground-water flow system in the central. Groundwater is the sole source for water use to the rural community and two Native American tribes in the Cahuilla Valley and Terwilliger Valley groundwater basins, which are located approximately 35 miles southwest of Palm Springs, California.

Through a Cited by: In the Central Valley, Calif., where 57% of square miles of land is irrigated, ground-water recharge from agricultural lands is an important input to digital simulation models of ground-water flow.

Several methods of calculating recharge were explored for the Central Valley Aquifer Project and a simplified water budget was designed where net recharge. Groundwater Availability of the Central Valley Aquifer, California Table C1.
