Chowchilla Subbasin

Description The Chowchilla Subbasin exists within the larger San Joaquin Valley Groundwater basin, as described in the California Department of Water Resources Bulletin 118. The County of Madera is the exclusive GSA for the portion of the Chowchilla Subbasin in the unincorporated area of the County, and not otherwise covered by another public agency.

Basin Boundary Modification On behalf of the Chowchilla Subbasin, the County of Madera is requesting modifications of the boundaries described in Bulletin 118. Briefly, the issues concern “white space” and County jurisdictional boundary overlaps along the Merced/Madera county boundary, along the Chowchilla River, and along the western boundary between Fresno and Madera counties created by the inconsistencies in data sources. The intended boundary modification to be submitted to DWR by June 30, 2018, by the Madera County-1 GSA on behalf of the entire subbasin, will seek to fix these inconsistencies.
