Analysis shows increasing groundwater levels in the Coachella Valley

From the Coachella Valley Water District:

The two annual reports for the 2017-18 water year, one on the Indio Subbasin and the other on the Mission Creek Subbasin, which make up most of the valley’s aquifer, were submitted before the State’s April 1 deadline.

Successful groundwater replenishment programs along with continued efforts to conserve, reduce water waste and to connect customers to the nonpotable water system for irrigation purposes resulted in the positive trends observed in groundwater storage in both subbasins during the past 10 years.
