Summary

These data present a ground-water inventory of existing geospatial data and other information needed to determine the extent and characteristics of the aquifers in the Tahoe Basin. Geospatial and other data include geologic maps and soil surveys of the entire basin and for specific watersheds within the basin at the best available scales; vegetation from remote-sensing data; well information from various local, state, and federal agencies; geophysical surveys; and results of available ground-water studies. The compilation and development of a ground-water inventory geospatial database will assist the United States Forest Service in better assessing the present and future impacts on ground-water resources within the Lake Tahoe Basin.
