Coverage of groundwater management since July 20, 2020.

Vancouver redevelopment's critics question lack of early hydrogeological study

"...In a joint statement, the MST-CLC Partnership said the lands will be a model for rainwater management and possibly restore historic waterflows to downstream wetlands and other systems in Jericho Beach Park. “At the same time, water will be slowed, stored, and celebrated so that spiritual and other cultural relationships with water can be restored at ??y?alm?x?/Iy?lmexw/Jericho Lands,” the partnership wrote. “We have undertaken technical work alongside the City of Vancouver to better understand the aquifer and how groundwater moves through it..."

Arizona Is Not Running Out of Water or Workers

"...Arizonas landmark 1980 Groundwater Management Act restricted irrigation on new farmland, established active management areas covering the states fastest-growing metropolitan areas, and implemented a 100-year assured water supply requirement for builders. It took over three decades for California to follow suit and pass its own groundwater management act..."

CSRD could be fined $300K for Revelstoke landfill problems

"...In June 2019, an environmental protection officer, Blake Ross identified several areas of concern including groundwater management and excessive litter. Though the CSRD said they had addressed the issues, an inspection one year later, identified several of the same problems and the province issued a warning letter in December..."

Big data offers promise of better groundwater management in California

"..."One component to managing groundwater sustainably is evaluating the physical resource within the context of its users", says Debra Perrone co-author of the study and Assistant Professor in UC Santa Barbara's Environmental Studies Program. "We evaluate the link between groundwater quality, particularly salinity, and groundwater users. We show that the current approach used to manage deep groundwater in some places may risk overlooking the complex realities pertaining to both groundwater salinity and groundwater users..."

Making comprehensive water resources modeling more accessible

"...In order to aid in the accurate assessment of water supply and the demands of both people and the environment, IIASA researchers have developed a large-scale hydrological and water resources model ? the Community Water Model (CWatM). The model can simulate the movement, distribution, and management of water both globally and regionally to evaluate water availability in terms of water demand and environmental needs. It includes an accounting of how future water demand will evolve in response to socioeconomic change and how water availability will be influenced by climate change..."
