Using Surface Water and Groundwater Reservoirs Together to Grow Yields

  1. 1. RMC Water and Environment Using Surface Water and Groundwater Reservoirs Together to Grow Yields
  2. 2. Introduction  Named among Engineering News Records' Top 200 Environmental Firms, RMC Water and Environment evaluates the use of water resources. Focus areas of RMC Water and Environment include studying the impact of utilizing surface and groundwater storage together. It is possible to increase California’s water supply yield by integrating surface water and groundwater storage as a joint resource. Individually, surface water reservoirs capture water during climates that produce the most volume, such as wet winters. The water supplements dry up during spring and summer. Groundwater reservoirs are dedicated to long-term storage to be used when multi-year droughts occur.
  3. 3. Surface Water and Groundwater  Treating each resource separately limits streamflow, resulting in use of no more than 6 million acre-feet of additional surface and groundwater storage capacity. Initiatives that allow use of both can increase new storage capacities by up to 15 percent annually, with five percent expected at the lower end of the spectrum. Proper coordination can result in reliable water supply to farms and wildlife areas, as well as support the demand for water in cities.
