Citizen Science
The Science Behind Our Local Water

A lot of science goes into the management and planning of our local water resources to ensure that our community has a reliable water supply. This includes the effort to make sure water transferred from the City of Santa Cruz is compatible with the District's system and how recycled treated wastewater will be purified to replenish the overdrafted groundwater basin to prevent further seawater intrusion. Monitoring, detecting and mapping seawater intrusion, climate change, hydrology, groundwater modeling, conventional potable water treatment, advanced recycled purification water treatment processes are some of the topics that will be covered in this presentation. Presented by the Soquel Creek Water District.
