Mendenhall and others (1916) published depth-to-water data compiled in 1910 for all known wells in the San Joaquin Valley, California. Data for the 3,429 wells having depth-to-water of greater than zero feet were used to construct an interpolated depth-to-water surface for the entire SJV. This map represents groundwater levels in approximately 1910, prior to extensive development of the groundwater system. A depth-to-water contour map with contour lines of 5, 10, 15, and 25 meters below land surface was then drawn from this raster surface.

Northeast SJV (NESJV), Southeast SJV (SESJV), Western SJV (WSJV), and Southern SJV (SSJV). These regions were primarily defined from the California Department of Water Resources SJV groundwater subbasins (CDWR, 2003); minor modifications were made to the CDWR defined subbasin boundaries to optimize separation of groundwater derived from the Sierra Nevada to the east and from the Coast Ranges to the west under predevelopment conditions. Each region was divided into equal-area grid cells, ranging from 280 km2 in the SESJV to 984 km2 in the SSJV, for a total of 88 cells. These cell sizes were the minimum sizes in each region for which 60% of the cells in the region would contain at least 1 well with full major ion...

Depth-to-water data in the San Joaquin Valley, CA were collected in 1910 and published in Mendenhall and others, 1916. These data were used to create a depth-to-water contour of the Valley described in Plate 1 entitled "Map of San Joaquin Valley, California showing artesian areas, ground-water levels and location of pumping plants", which includes a depiction of geographical areas where flowing well (artesian) conditions existed in 1910. These "Areas of flowing wells" have been converted into a digital vector format (ArcGIS Shapefile) for use in future research.

Mendenhall and others (1916) assessed groundwater resources in California's San Joaquin Valley in 1910 to estimate the availability of groundwater of suitable quality for agricultural, industrial, and drinking water supplies. They inventoried nearly all existing wells, compiled depth-to-water at 4,002 wells, and collected water-quality data at 485 wells. Samples were collected from 114 wells for laboratory analysis of total dissolved solids (TDS), chloride, sulfate, bicarbonate, carbonate, calcium, magnesium, sodium+potassium, and silica (Mendenhall and others. 1916; Dole, 1909). Field assays were used to measure TDS, chloride, sulfate, bicarbonate, carbonate, and total hardness in samples from 371 wells (Mendenhall...

The ascii grids associated with this data release are predicted distributions of continuous pH at the drinking water depth zones in the groundwater of Central Valley, California. The two prediction grids produced in this work represent predicted pH at the domestic supply and public supply drinking water depths, respectively and are bound by the alluvial boundary that defines the Central Valley. A depth of 46 m was used to stratify wells into the shallow and deep aquifer and were derived from depth percentiles associated with domestic and public supply in previous work by Burow et al. (2013). In this work, the median well depth categorized as domestic supply was 30 meters below land surface and the median well depth...

The ascii grids represent regional probabilities that groundwater in a particular location will have dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations less than selected threshold values representing anoxic groundwater conditions or will have dissolved manganese (Mn) concentrations greater than selected threshold values representing secondary drinking water-quality contaminant levels (SMCL) and health-based screening levels (HBSL) for water quality. The probability models were constrained by the alluvial boundary of the Central Valley to a depth of approximately 300 meters (m). We utilized prediction modeling methods, specifically boosted regression trees (BRT) with a Bernoulli error distribution within a statistical learning...
