Abstract:
East Valley Water District is located in San Bernardino, California which is approximately 50 miles east of Los Angeles. In order to meet future water demands, East Valley Water District plans to increase recharge activities in the forebay area of the San Bernardino groundwater basin and expand wellfield operations immediately downgradient. Three possible recharge and wellfield designs were under consideration with annual recharge rates increasing 10,000 to 20,000 acre-feet/year in the Santa Ana spreading basins. Approximately four to five new production wells pumping an equal quantity of groundwater have been proposed. A two-dimensional finite element groundwater flow model was constructed and calibrated to reproduce historical water level data for the year 1945. They calibrated model was applied to simulate the hydrologic effects of each of the three designs over a ten-year period.
