Big Chino Groundwater: Essential Source of Upper Verde River Streamflow

Big Chino Groundwater: Essential Source of Upper Verde River Streamflow

May 12 2018 -
10:00am to 12:00pm

Groundwater pumping, both past and future, in Big Chino Valley threatens one of the most beautiful sections of the Verde River, the upper 24 miles from east of Paulden through Perkinsville. Combined with pumping in the Verde Valley, pumping in Big Chino Valley also threatens the year-round flow of the Verde River and the vibrant riparian corridor that it supports. Retired USGS geologist Ed Wolfe will help us understand the working of this linked groundwater-surface water system when he discusses “Big Chino Groundwater: Essential Source of Upper Verde River Streamflow” at the Saturday, May 12 meeting of the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG).
