Groundwater Sustainability Bootcamp – A Shortcourse

This shortcourse will review the fundamental principles of groundwater and watershed hydrology, water budgets, water quality, and water law and regulation in an intuitive, highly accessible fashion. Through real world examples, participants will learn about the most common tools for measuring, monitoring, and assessing groundwater and surface water resources. The course will then review the key elements of a GSP. Case studies are used so participants learn about:

• development of conceptual models, water budgets, and GSP sustainability criteria;
• designing minimum thresholds and operating targets (measureable objectives) for GSPs and how to link those to monitoring networks;
• methods for addressing climate variability and climate change;
• recharge as a tool to enhance groundwater supplies;
• GSA governance; and
• available online planning resources.

Is Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) right for your community?

ASR is a drought-resilient water technology that moves excess water during times of plenty into aquifers for evaporation-free storage. Then, during times of drought or need, the water can be retrieved for beneficial use. ASR expands the use of underground aquifers to help meet water demands of Texas’ growing population, especially in the face of drought and climate change.

This one-day educational seminar will help you determine how ASR might work in your community.  

March 5 -7 2018, San Diego, California


The Sixteenth Biennial Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge, Recharge to the Rescue!, Managed Aquifer Recharge as a Water Management Tool, will take place at on March 5-7, 2018 in San Diego, CA.  This event continues a long-standing series of symposia originating in Arizona in 1978.  The Fifteenth Biennial Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge was combined with the Ninth International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge (ISMAR 9) held in Mexico City in 2016.  The Groundwater Resources Association of California and the Arizona Hydrological Society have teamed up to hold the BSMAR event with the location alternating between California and Arizona.
