DBS&A’s Water Resource Scientist, Hannah Erbele, and GLA’s Senior Vice President and Principal Geologist, John Hower, PG, CEG, will be attending and exhibiting at the 2019 conference convened by the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA), supported by SAWPA’s member agencies, and coordinated by the Water Education Foundation. The importance of the Santa Ana River Watershed and how the region is finding resilient solutions to improve the quality and reliability of the local water supply will be the key focus of the conference. The event will take place on March 29, 2019 at Cal State Fullerton.
DBS&A performed the 1996-2015 ambient water quality (AWQ) recomputation for the Santa Ana Watershed Groundwater Management Zones (GMZs) in collaborative strategic partnership with SAWPA Basin Task Force member agencies, Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), and 20+ stakeholders in 40 GMZs. DBS&A computed the AWQ for total dissolved solids (TDS) and nitrate-nitrogen, which involved collecting, processing, and storing all groundwater quality and groundwater levels data in a centralized database. Assessing watershed-scale groundwater quality has assisted SAWPA and the task force members to achieve sustainable groundwater management and compliance with the 2004 Basin Plan Amendment for the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board.
