Steps in Comprehensive Groundwater Planning 1. Inventory resource and develop a database 2. Use one of following systems to prioritize areas: A. do an aquifer classification of the entire area B. identify specific sensitive areas C. develop a groundwater model to estimate the effects of various development scenarios D. rank existing and potential threats 3. Define management goals ex. Maximum safe yield for removal ex. areas for safe contaminant discharge 4. Determine how much protection is needed for each area. 5. Develop management strategies. 6. Implement, monitor, feedback to steps 3-5.

Maximum safe yield for removal ex. areas for safe contaminant discharge 4. Determine how much protection is needed for each area. 5. Develop management strategies. 6. Implement, monitor, feedback to steps 3-5. Strategies for Groundwater Protection • zoning ordinances and development permits to limit development densities • groundwater withdrawal controls • prohibition of septic systems in sensitive areas • restricted use of lawn fertilizers, pesticides • set aside recharge areas in open space, forests • establish groundwater monitoring program • hazardous waste collection – residential • public education – wellhead protection • road salt storage and use control • farm nutrient management plans...
