Abstract

Adequate supplies of ground water for municipal use generally are not available within a 3-mile radius of Pescadero, San Mateo County, California. The required quantity of 100 gallons per minute probably could be obtained from one or more wells in the alluvium along Pescadero Creek; however, the quality of the water probably would deteriorate with time and might not be suitable for public supply for more than 20 or 30 years. Sand and gravel beds below 60 feet in the alluvium near the junction of Honsinger and Pescadero Creeks offer the best potential for developing domestic water supplies. (Kosco-USGS)
