Each spring and fall, the YCFCWCD measures the groundwater in approximately 150 wells. The sawtooth shape of the line in the graph above is due to the spring/fall fluctuation each year, high in spring, low in fall. This year, spring measurements occurred around the first week of April.
This spring 2016’s measurements show the groundwater is slightly higher than last spring. Even though groundwater is improving, it is still low due to the drought.
