Abstract

Aquifer storage was monitored using gravity methods in the Lower Canada del Oro subbasin from 1996 through 1998 to determine areas of infiltration and amounts of recharge along the Canada del Oro Wash after major surface flow and to estimate aquifer-storage change and specific-yield values for the regional aquifer.  Both purposes were addressed by periodic monitoring of changes in aquifer storage and water levels at a network of gravity stations and monitor wells.  Water levels and gravity were also monitored near an active withdrawal well for several months for the purpose of estimating specific yield of the aquifer within the cone of water-leel depression at the well.
