SEAWATER INTRUSION IN SOQUEL 2-3-14 1910 OG

THE SOQUEL WATER DISTRICT WANTS ITS USERS TO “DO MORE TO USE LESS”.     DURING THIS DROUGHT, MORE WATER IS BEING USED THAN IS GOING BACK INTO THE BASIN, WHICH ALLOWS FOR SEAWATER INTRUSION.    BECAUSE SEAWATER IS HEAVIER THAN FRESH WATER, THE SEAWATER CAN PUSH RIGHT THROUGH.     THIS ISSUE IS CRITICAL, EVEN AFTER THE DROUGHT ENDS, AS SEAWATER CANNOT BE USED FOR DRINKING NOR IRRIGATION AND THE LEVELS OF INTRUSION ARE NOT EASILY RESOLVED.     THE DISTRICT’S 75 WELLS ARE CLOSELY MONITORED YEAR-ROUND AND THEY HAVE ALREADY FOUND INTRUSION, BUT NOT IN THEIR PRODUCTION WELLS YET.     THE SOQUEL WATER DISTRICT IS LOOKING INTO LONG-TERM RESOLUTIONS.
