Monitoring data from a managed aquifer recharge system that collects stormwater runoff in central coastal California. Precipitation, runoff, infiltration, sediment, survey

Sarah Beganskas & Andrew Fisher
Groundwater is increasingly important for satisfying California’s growing fresh water demand. Strategies like managed aquifer recharge (MAR) can improve groundwater supplies, mitigating the negative consequences of persistent groundwater overdraft. Distributed stormwater collection (DSC) MAR projects collect and infiltrate excess hillslope runoff before it reaches a stream, focusing on 40–400 ha drainage areas (100–1000 ac). We present results from six years of DSC–MAR operation—including high resolution analyses of precipitation, runoff generation, infiltration, and sediment transport—and discuss...
