Geology of the fresh ground-water basin of the Central Valley, California: with texture maps and sections. [R W Page; Geological Survey (U.S.),]. The Central Valley is a flat valley that dominates the interior of is 40 to 60 miles (60 to km) wide and stretches approximately miles ( km) from north-northwest to south-southeast, inland from and parallel to the Pacific Ocean coast.

It covers approximat square miles (47, km 2), about 11% of California's total land area (or about the size of the Dominican Area: 18, sq mi (47, km²). The Central Valley, also known as the Great Valley of California, covers ab square miles and is one of the more notable structural depressions in the world.

Occupying a central position in California, it is bounded by the Cascade Range to the north, the Sierra Nevada to the east, the Tehachapi Mountains to the south, and the Coast. The complex hydrologic system of the Central Valley is simulated using the USGS numerical modeling code MODFLOW-FMP (Schmid and others, ), which estimates dynamically integrated supply-and-demand components of irrigated agriculture as part of the simulation of surface-water and ground-water flow based on MODFLOW Bulletin is California’s official publication on the occurrence and nature of groundwater statewide.

Bulletin defines the boundaries and describes the hydrologic characteristics of California’s groundwater basins and provides information on groundwater management and.

U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper C. PMC Groundwater is a critical element of the California water supply. During a normal year, 30% of the state's water supply comes from groundwater (underground water). In times of intense drought, groundwater consumption can rise to 60% or more.

Overacre feet (1, km 3) of water is stored in California's known groundwater reservoirs. In order to carry out the intent of Section of the Water Code with respect to investigations of quality of ground waters within the State, it has been necessary first to compile available geologic data in order to locale and define the approximate boundaries of the more important ground water basins.

Most of the modifications were made to basins in the Central Valley and included refinements reflecting waterways, county lines and geologic information. After the passage of SGMA, the Orange County Water District reviewed the boundaries of Basinwhich were published in the first Bulletin in and in subsequent updates in and.

Overview: Groundwater in California’s Central Valley is subject to contamination by a variety of natural and human-sourced presents potential human health hazards and financial challenges to water treatment municipalities.

Notable contaminants in the Central Valley like nitrates from fertilizer application as well as agricultural chemicals (herbicides, pesticides.

The Central Valley is a highly productive agricultural region with approximately 7 million of California’s nearly 9 million acres of irrigated farmland (California Department of Water Resources, Agricultural Land and Water Use Estimates, ). In addition, over 80% of California’s million adult cows live on dairies in the Central Valley.Groundwater availability of the Central Valley Aquifer, California.

California's Central Valley covers ab square miles and is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world. More than different crops are grown in the Central Valley with an estimated value of $17 billion per year.
