Background

The West San Jacinto Groundwater Basin Management Plan was adopted by the Board on June 8, 1995.  The Watershed Monitoring Program is a component of this plan.  Its purpose is to continue to monitor groundwater levels, groundwater quality, groundwater extraction, and overall health of the watershed.

 

Data collected from the Watershed Monitoring Program supports other regulatory requirements including the California State-Wide Groundwater Elevation Monitoring, Triennial Ambient Water Quality Re-Computation, recycled water program, and San Jacinto Watershed Groundwater Recordation Program, as well as regional planning and studies and the Groundwater Numerical Model.  Participants in the Watershed Monitoring Program include EMWD, the cities of Moreno Valley and Perris, Nuevo Water Company, and private groundwater producers.  Groundwater management plans are required by the State for an area to receive grant funding.
