Central Valley

Groundwater is a major source - if not the only source - of drinking water for many communities within the vast Central Valley stretching from San Joaquin County to Kern County. The region also relies on water from the State Water Project, Central Valley Project and other locally financed water projects. In the small rural foothill communities above the valley floor, many homes are supplied by individual wells.
