Project Description: CV-SALTS continues to develop a Geographic Information System (GIS) to organize information pertaining to the beneficial uses, water quality objectives, water use infrastructure, and water quality of surface water and groundwater in the Central Valley. Development of this GIS supports ongoing efforts to develop a Salt/Nutrient Management Plan (SNMP) for the Central Valley by providing a centralized geodatabase for all matters pertaining to the development and implementation of the SNMP. This project builds off the CV-SALTS Phase 1 Beneficial Use Objectives Study (BUOS), which established baseline GIS-related data to support CV-SALTS. Phase 2 will update the existing geodatabase to incorporate the 2012 National Hydrography Dataset and incorporate new water infrastructure-related data, e.g., municipal surface water intakes, locations of wastewater facility discharges to surface water, agricultural water intakes, and groundwater wells.
Project Status: Project initiated in September 2012 and completed October 2013.
- Task 3 - Address Identified Data Gaps in Existing BUOS System
- Task 4 - Incorporate Additional GIS Map Layers into Existing System
