Water in the West, the University of Victoria, Foundry Spatial, The Nature Conservancy, and the Environmental Defense Fund are co-hosted a workshop entitled, "Tools and Methods for Assessing Groundwater-Surface Water Connectivity under SGMA”. The full-day workshop took place on March 12, 2018 at Stanford University.
This workshop sought to:
- Engage with individuals and entities working on groundwater and surface water connectivity and groundwater dependent ecosystems under SGMA;
- Examine recent research and tool development to assess research gaps and areas to coordinate or collaborate research effort to help address surface water depletions under SGMA; and
- Where new research or tools are necessary, identify their potential role in water management decisions, the data needs, essential functionality, and potential users, locations and partners for pilot studies.
