Summary

Well construction data for 11,917 domestic and 2,390 public-supply wells in the Central Valley were compiled as part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Quality Assessment Project (NAWQA) and California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment Program Priority Basin Project (GAMA-PBP). Data were compiled for wells reported in the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS) database and from well information reported to the SWRCB Department of Drinking Water (SWRCB-DDW). Driller’s log data were transcribed from scanned images of well completion reports filed with California Department of Water Resources (DWR). The wells reported in this data release were filtered by [...]

Purpose

These data provide well construction information for domestic and public-supply wells in the Central Valley, and rasterized surfaces representing the depth zones in the aquifer system used by domestic and public-supply wells. The data table can be used in hydrologic modeling, mapping and visualization, and well-screen surfaces may be used to calculate probable volumes of water-supply available for withdrawal in the Central Valley.
