      Groundwater in California is very precious, yet what we can withdraw is often contaminated with natural and anthropogenic pollution sources. We have examined the Borrego Valley (BV) groundwater (N = 6 wells) in southern California to understand the source of arsenic and nitrate in some of its groundwater production wells. The results show that the arsenic values range from Cited by: 2. Climate change has led to an increase in extreme weather events and desertification of vast areas of southern Argentina.

The Potential for groundwater contamination along basin margins in the arid West: alluvial fans and lake features. Many towns of the arid west were built upon alluvial fans and upon sites underlain by Pleistocene lake deposits.

The importance of groundwater is growing based on an increasing need and decreasing rainfall in arid lands (Mohamed et al., ). UAE is one of the most water scarce countries in the world. Desert springs, often the sole sources of water for wildlife and cattle, support wetland and wetland/upland transition ecosystems including rare and endemic species.

The Central Groundwater Basin (Central Basin) of southern Los Angeles County includes ~ mi 2 of the Los Angeles Coastal Plain and serves as the primary source of water for more than two million residents. In the Santa Fe Springs–Whittier–Norwalk area, located in the northeastern part of the basin, several sources of volatile organic compounds have been identified.

GROUNDWATER RECHARGE IN SEMIARID AND ARID REGIONS Terminology Infiltration refers to water movement from the surface into the subsurface. Terms such as net infiltration, drainage,orpercolation are used to describe water movement below the root zone, and these can be equated to groundwater recharge as long as climate and LU/LC remain the same while water moves.

The Upper Black Squirrel Creek Basin is located about 25 kilometers east of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
