San Diego Hydrogeology

Welcome to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) San Diego Hydrogeology project website, which provides geologic and hydrologic information for the transboundary San Diego–Tijuana area, USA and Mexico. This website provides background information about the project; a variety of news items; a large amount of data, in particular for USGS multiple-depth, monitoring-well sites; geologic and hydrologic models; and additional resources including photos, illustrations, and references. Last updated: April 2016

Some additional data may be available from the USGS database National Water Information System (NWIS).

Water-Management Model

A water-management model can come in many forms. Most water-management models come from the field of operations research or systems engineering. More recently, decision support systems have been used to analyze water systems and to facilitate decision making. The primary goal of water-management models is to capture the basic structure of the water system, to investigate interaction among the many components, and to identify possible improvements in the system.
