Golden Valley Aquifer Recharge Program
The Golden Valley Artificial Ground Water Recharge Program addressed declining water levels in the Golden Valley area. The aquifer is relied upon by Golden Valley residents as their primary water source for their domestic wells. Unfortunately, the area experienced continuous declining water levels over multiple years threatening the water supply for multiple owners. To stablize declining groundwater levels, potable water is injected into the ground and the water supply is continuously monitored for contaminants. Washoe County owns four injection wells as well as monitoring wells, valves, and mains related to the facilities.
