CALIFORNIA REGIONAL WATER QUALITY CONTROL BOARD (CENTRAL VALLEY REGION) SUNCENTER DRIVE, SUITE RANCHO CORDOVA, CA BOARD MEETING MINUTES. TH. Regular Meeting. APRIL , THURSDAY, APRIL 7. CALL TO ORDER. Chair, Kate Hart called to order the th regular meeting of the California Regional Water Quality Control.

    The hydrologic framework of the Santa Clara Valley in northern California was redefined on the basis of new data and a new hydrologic model. The regional groundwater flow systems can be subdivided into upper-aquifer and lower-aquifer systems that form a convergent flow system within a basin bounded by mountains and hills on three sides and discharge to pumping wells and the southern San. As California’s population grows, rural development increasingly encroaches along or near streams. Resulting impacts include water diversions, groundwater pumping, streambed alteration (to protect houses from flooding, construct road crossings, etc.), and pollution (especially from septic tanks and illegal waste dumping). ×.
