VIDEO. From the Montara Water and Sanitary District (MWSD) Director’s meeting on Thursday, November 2nd, 2023 at 7:30pm, as a hybrid meeting.
Receive presentation about the District’s management of the underlying granitic aquifer in Montara.
For the initial 5 years of operation of the District’s Alta Vista Well, MWSD was charged with the implementation of a groundwater monitoring program. MWSD chose to extend the groundwater monitoring beyond the required term and expanded the program to include other scientific measures that increase the understanding of the aquifer.
The Alta Vista Well is drilled deep into solid bedrock of granitic type unlike most drinking water wells in California that are in non-consolidated sediments. Therefore, usual draw down and recovery tests are not suited to evaluate production rates and pumping sustainability.
Mark Woyshner with Balance Hydrologics will be available to present the most recent monitoring results. The attached slide show containing the information was presented at the most recent Groundwater Resources Association of California.
Watch remotely. Comments and questions by email.
