2021/22 Annual Report of the Ground-Level Monitoring Committee
The Prado Basin is a flood control area in the southern portion of the Chino Basin. Since the construction of the Prado Dam in 1941, a riparian habitat had developed in this region including species with protected statuses. The Prado Basin Habitat Sustainability Committee was formed to help protect the riparian habitat. For the latest report from this committee, click the button below.

The Chino Basin Judgment defines the Safe Yield as the “long-term average annual quantity of ground water (excluding replenishment or stored water but including return flow to the Basin from use of replenishment or stored water) which can be produced from the Basin under cultural conditions of a particular year without causing an undesirable result.”
The Optimum Basin Management Program (OBMP) was developed in a collaborative public process that identified the needs and wants of all stakeholders, described the physical state of the groundwater basin,defined a set of management goals, characterized impediments to those goals, and developed a series of actions that could be taken to remove the impediments and achieve the management goals.
The 2007 ground water model and its 2013 model update, collectively referred to as the Chino Valley Model (CVM), were prepared for the evaluation of the Peace II Project and the Safe Yield Recalculation respectively. Please see Resolution 2020-05 of the Chino Basin Watermaster Regarding Procedure and Fee Schedule for Requesting Information and Documents Related to the CVM.
The Recharge Master Plan is a basin-wide effort led by the Inland Empire Utilities Agency, Watermaster, the Chino Basin Water Conservation District, and the San Bernardino County Flood Control District to achieve: 1) Enhance Basin Water Supplies; and 2) Protect and Enhance Water Quality.
