The project will assess the overall state of the basin by preparing a preliminary water balance and estimating sustainable yield. The project will characterize the water inputs and outputs to the basin and address questions regarding storage, hydraulic movement, spatial and seasonal variability, connectivity between water-bearing units, river-aquifer interaction, the freshwater-saltwater boundary, and trends in water levels. The results of the technical studies will support the determination whether a Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) must be prepared in accordance with Water Code Section 10727 et seq, or whether there is sufficient evidence to support preparation of an Alternative Submittal in accordance with Water Code Section 10733.6.
