Depth-to-groundwater beneath vegetation re-inventory parcels, June 1999

Series_Name: Inyo County Water Department Report
Issue_Identification: Unknown
Description:
Abstract:
Data from shallow monitoring wells in the Owens Valley were used as the basis for interoplation to predict the depth-to-groundwater throughout the entire Owens Valley. The interpolated values were converted to a grid format which can be read in a GIS.
Purpose:
The grids of interpolated depth-to-water values are a tool to improve management of groundwater in the Owens Valley. They can be used to infer groundwater pumping impacts to the water table, and can be used to investigate and potentially explain variation in vegetation cover and composition over time.
