Depth-to-Water Interpolation

Inyo County receives point-based depth-to-water (DTW) measurements from a test well network across Owens Valley every year from LADWP. Gridded DTW surfaces have been estimated using kriging techniques at 100-m cell size in part to characterize DTW beneath vegetation parcels without monitoring wells. Gridded DTW surfaces have been developed for 1984-2010. ICWD is currently in the process of developing DTW surfaces for 2011-2015.
