Cultural Water Demand in the San Rafael Basin

Cultural water demand data including population, number of wells and the average well pumpage and surface water diversions by the municipal, industrial and agricultural sectors are shown in Table 3.12-7.  There is no recorded effluent generation in this basin.  The USGS National Gap Analysis Program, the source of cultural demand map data, showed no demand centers for this basin.   A description of cultural water demand data sources and methods is found in Volume 1, Appendix A.  More detailed information on cultural water demand is found in Section 3.0.7.

Cultural Water Demand

  • Refer to Table 3.12-7.
  • Population remained almost unchanged from 1980 to 2005. 

  • Groundwater pumping remained constant from 1971 to 2005 at less than 300 AFA.

  • All water use in this basin is groundwater, there are no recorded surface water diversions.

  • Municipal demand is the only use in this basin and is minimal, less than 300 AFA.  This includes domestic and stock watering use.

  • As of 2005 there were 224 registered wells with a pumping capacity of less than or equal to 35 gpm and 26 wells with a pumping capacity of more than 35 gpm.
