Title: New Monitoring Wells Along the San Joaquin River
The US Geological Survey has begun drilling monitoring wells as part of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program, in California's Central Valley. This video documents how USGS research drillers are installing wells to monitor groundwater at several river locations.
These wells will help USGS and other agencies track groundwater conditions near the river as additional water is released from Friant Dam as part of the restoration effort.
The San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP) is a comprehensive long-term effort to restore flows to the San Joaquin River from Friant Dam to the confluence of the Merced River and restore a self-sustaining Chinook salmon fishery in the river while reducing or avoiding adverse water supply impacts from restoration flows.
