2/15/17 -A Groundwater-Flow Model

The U.S. Geological Survey and the Idaho Department of Water Resources have started developing a groundwater-flow model for Idaho’s Treasure Valley aquifer system. Resource managers will use the new model to simulate groundwater flow in the aquifer system underlying the Treasure Valley, an area that includes about 38 percent of Idaho’s current population. The Treasure Valley’s population is projected to grow to 1.6 million by 2065, increasing demands for water. I spoke on this program with USGS Scientist Jim Bartolino and Sean Vincent at the Idaho Department of Water Resources about how the model will work and what we can learn from it.
