Watermaster has periodically recalculated the Safe Yield of the Chino Basin using its groundwater-flow model. The linked documents include the past Safe Yield recalculations (2015 and 2020) and the current methodology to recalculate the Safe Yield, which was updated in 2022. Materials related to the current 2025 Safe Yield Reevaluation effort can be found here.
The linked reports document Watermaster's use of its groundwater-flow model for investigations beyong Safe Yield recalculations, including the evaluation of the Peace II Project Description (2007), the biennial model update and required demonstrations, and evaluations of potential Storage and Recovery Programs.
The 2000 Optimum Basin Management Program (OBMP) and the subsequent 2020 OBMP Update is the guiding groundwater management program for the Chino Basin. The OBMP describes the management goals for the basin and the necessay actions to achieve the goals. Information and materials on the collaborative stakeholder process that supported the development of the 2020 OBMP Update can be found here.
Watermaster develops and updates a Recharge Master Plan to organize, enhance, and improve recharge to the Chino Basin pursuant to Watermaster policies and the management goals defined in the OBMP. Recharge Master Plans are updated at least every five years, with the most recent update occurring in 2023.
Monthly recharge activities based on IEUA's reporting of Groundwater Recharge may be found here.
