Groundwater Levels and Other Supplies

Groundwater Elevation and Deliveries (1962 – 2017)

Monthly Depth to Groundwater Report

Because the SWP and City of Bakersfield contract supplies are insufficient to supply the District’s demands other sources are routinely acquired.  These include: temporary contracts with the Bureau of Reclamation for Friant-Kern floodwaters, Kern River flood flows, spot-market water purchases, beneficial rainfall, and the groundwater basin safe-yield.  These supplies make up approximately 44% of the District’s water supply portfolio.
