Groundwater Sampling in Progress to Ensure Water Quality - Slight Runoff May Occur

Groundwater sampling

Groundwater is a critical source of ACWD’s water, making up 30 to 60 percent of our total supply. This sampling ensures its safety. As part of the sampling protocol, a limited amount of groundwater must be removed from wells and discharged to nearby storm drains.  As a result, you may notice water temporarily flowing in the gutters near the sampling sites.  While ACWD is attempting to minimize water use during a drought, protecting our groundwater resources is key to our mission of providing a reliable supply of high-quality water to our customers.
