Reclamation of Water from Sewage and Industrial Wastes

Excerpt from Reclamation of Water From Sewage and Industrial Wastes: Watsonville Area, Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties The phenomenal growth of California, evidenced in population as well as in agricultural and industrial activity, stresses the need for the orderly development of the State's water resources and the solu tion of the many complex associated problems. Many regions of the State experience serious continuing or periodic water shortages. In these areas, large quantities of sewage and industrial wastes frequently are discharged to tidal waters, inland water courses, or are disposed of by application to land. Wastes discharged to tidal waters are irrecoverable. Portions of wastes discharged to inland streams or to land are usually recoverable through subsequent use of ground or surface waters. Past investigations of the water resources and physical develop ment of the Pajaro Valley, have shown that the rate of ground water extraction, as of l9h9, exceeded the safe yield of the aquifers by about acre-feet per year. In addition, more recent investigations have shown that there is evidence of sea-water intrusion into the valley floor area, extending inland to a distance of about one and one-quarter miles an a one-mile front paralleling the coast line. Plate 1 depicts ground water levels and the extent of sea-water intrusion in the main producing aquifer of the watsonville area during the fall of 1957.
