IGSM (Integrated Groundwater Surface Water Modeling Program)

The District is working on a massive computer simulation of the aquifer in Yolo County. Data obtained from the Groundwater Monitoring Program, among other sources will be used to create a mathematical model of the aquifer. This half million dollar project, which is funded in part by the Local Groundwater Assistance Fund through AB303, will be used for analyzing aquifer recharge and recovery on Cache Creek, and for simulating urban issues such as population growth and water supply during a drought.

Results from different water management scenarios such as municipal use of Sacramento River water could be analyzed. Changing agricultural practices, groundwater extraction patterns and additional surface water storage capacity could be quantified and analyzed in order to guide water management decisions.
