Groundwater monitoring

Sponsor: Trout Unlimited

 

Project Cost: $174,240

Description: This project established a groundwater elevation grid in DACs to evaluate the efficacy of water storage through beaver and other pending restoration works.

Disadvantaged Community Impacts/Benefits: The communities of McCloud, Mt. Shasta and Dunsmuir are entirely dependent upon local groundwater resources for their municipal water supplies. The entire region is unconnected to any supply from state and federal water projects. The human right to water must be met within the region itself and quantification is the first step in planning and appropriate utlilzation.
