    The Groundwater Year Book gives details on the data collection network, aquifer systems represented, existing and emerging groundwater issues and an "overview of groundwater development and management strategies". Keeping in view the users from academic circles, information on the administrative setup, physiography, landuse, geology, and soil. "An insightful, behind-the-scenes look into water management in the West. The book not only explores the daunting challenges of growth and drought, but most importantly, highlights the many collaborative solutions that are the real, untold story of the last 15 years of the Colorado River.".

Water well instrumented for water-level data collection, satellite transmission, and real-time reporting on the Internet. Figure Ground water development near a stream can reduce streamflow and harm riparian vegetation, requiring management decisions to restore the system.

    Though the groundwater development is significant in the area, the detail study on aquifer condition and effective groundwater management practices are yet to be evaluated.   Hoping to bring overtaxed groundwater basins back into balance, the California legislature passed the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (Sgma) in to begin regulating groundwater for the Author: Susie Cagle.

This practice jeopardizes the primary water supply for many. Groundwater is a public interest resource, meaning that it is publicly owned, in most western states (e.g. Idaho § 42–A; Kansas § 82a(a); Utah § ).

The first phase of the study included gathering, compiling, evaluating, and synthesizing field and drilling data, geophysical logs, aquifer test data, and water-quality data from almost wells, borings, and surface exposures.Inin a remarkable effort that might seem impossible today, the desert state of Arizona protected its water resources by passing the celebrated Groundwater Management Act, a landmark law in the history of the American West.

This film is the story of that achievement.Participatory Groundwater Management. More than 2 billion people worldwide depend on groundwater for their daily water supply.

Major agricultural economies (North China, South Asia, North Africa/Middle East) depend on groundwater. This has in many areas come at a price: falling groundwater tables and deteriorating groundwater quality.
