brief history and a summary of planned activities for the onsite sewage program. The remaining six parts are based on guidance the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) provided to the Health Department. The two guidance documents provided by DOH were the On Site Sewage System Management Plan: Guidance for the Twelve Puget. Adopt critical areas regulations (RCW A) Include the Best Available Science in developing policies and development regulations to protect the functions and values of critical areas (RCW A) Give special consideration to conservation and protection measures necessary to preserve or enhance. The following characteristics define the hydrogeologic conditions of San Juan County’s aquifers. These multiple factors combine to characterize all of San Juan County’s recharge areas as highly susceptible to degradation and all of San Juan County is hereby designated a critical aquifer recharge area. 1. Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas Aquifer recharge areas perform many important biological and physical functions that benefit the county and its residents, including but not limited to: storing and conveying groundwater. Protection of aquifer recharge areas is, therefore, necessary to protect the public health, safety and general welfare.

have adopted aquifer protection or groundwater protection ordinances. Some have also worked with adjoin-ing communities to protect shared groundwater resources. In many ways, the role of municipali-ties extends into areas where the Legis-lature has been reluctant to extend the regulatory arm of state government. An example of this is the quality of. and guidance on control and management of nitrates for groundwater protection. The review is summarized below in this technical memorandum (Technical Memorandum #1). The baseline document for the review is the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) report “Lower Yakima Valley Groundwater Quality: Preliminary Assessment and. Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas This map depicts critical aquifer recharge areas and well head protection zones. Critical aquifer recharge areas have prevailing geologic conditions associated with infiltration rates that create a high potential for contamination of ground water or contribute significantly to the replenishment of ground water. The Kansas Department of Agriculture was able to help support science programs in dozens of Kansas high schools by providing them with lab equipment. Schools from across the state came to the agricultural laboratory in Topeka to take advantage of a unique opportunity to acquire science materials for their schools.

These areas are referred to as Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas. This document provides information about what Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas are and how to protect them. The Washington State Dept. of Ecology Water Quality Program has updated the technical guidance for Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas.

guidance document focuses upon the establishment of Critical Aquifer Recharge Area (CARA) ordinances necessary to protect ground water quality and ensure that sufficient aquifer recharge occurs to maintain the quantities necessary to support ground water’s use as a potable water source.

called Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas. The goal of establishing Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas is to protect the functions and values of a community’s drinking water by preventing pollution and maintaining supply. Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas A Critical Aquifer Recharge Area (CARA) is defined by the GMA as “areas with a.

A Critical Aquifer Recharge Area (CARA) is defined by the GMA as “areas with a critical recharging effect on aquife rs used for potable water.” The Washington Administrative Code (WAC) Chapter Author: Laurie Morgan. Thurston County Critical Areas Ordinance Update J The following documents represent a partial list of data and best available science.

This list is not meant to be exhaustive, and may be added to in the future. This document is intended to provide an index of the science and data that was reviewed and utilized by the Thurston Board of. "Guidelines for Estabilshing Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas" (Cook, ).

High = structural fill basin aquifer + more extensive alluvial deposits + h ig er sa lo w d n ty. M ed ium = F w sh al o +b rck q f >15"/y precipitation based on PRISM. Low = Low well density + bedrock aquifer +. The CARA ordinance was established for preventing degradation, and where possible, enhancing the quality of groundwater for drinking water or business purposes.

The CARA review is intended to limit potential contaminants within designated critical aquifer recharge areas. Guidance for the protection and restoration of significant groundwater recharge areas 7 Ecologically Significant Groundwater Recharge Areas (ESGRAs) ESGRAs are identified as areas of land that are responsible for supporting groundwater systems that sustain sensitive features like coldwater streams and wetlands.

To establish the ecological. Signifi cant ground water resources include those used by public water wells as well as sole-source aquifers. Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas are mapped based on the geology and physical characteristics of the soils in Thurston County, depth to groundwater, and known aquifers and active groundwater supplies.

This document presents a discussion of the design and installation of ground­ water monitoring wells without specific regulatory recommendations. The infor­ mation contained within the document is the product of many experiences, both published and unpublished to date.

Critical Aquifer Recharge Area Goals. Prevent degradation of groundwater quality in the county and improve water quality of aquifers that do not meet state standards.

Protect groundwater quality from development impacts. Secure adequate water. An aquifer recharge area critical area report shall be prepared by a qualified professional who is a hydrogeologist, geologist, or engineer, who is the site prior to facility establishment must be abandoned using techniques approved by the Ordinances Pesticide storage and use Chapter RCW, Chapter RCW Sawmills.

Critical aquifer recharge areas are areas that have been identified as having a critical effect on aquifers used for potable water and as being highly susceptible to groundwater contamination. Island County is a sole source aquifer, meaning that potable water comes only from groundwater.

So in this case, a goal of the Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO) is to preserve, protect, and. the vulnerability of the aquifer. Critical aquifer recharge area categories. A critical aquifer recharge area (CARA) is a geographic area with a critical recharging effect on aquifers used for potable water, including areas where an aquifer that is a source of drinking water isFile Size: KB.

Staff Recommendation: Designate entire Island is a Critical Aquifer Recharge Area Basis: • Sole source aquifer system designation • Nearly all of the Island identified as recharge area with significant recharge rates; remaining areas are discharge areas such as along shorelines or where groundwater sustains wetlands, lakes, and stream base flow.

CRITICAL AQUIFER RECHARGE AREAS. Federal Way Revised Code (FWRC) Ti Chapter“Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas,” apply to any development activity, or division of land, which requires review under FWRC Chap “Environmental Policy,” and which is located within a designated Critical Aquifer Recharge Area.

(1) Potable water is an essential life sustaining element for people and many other species. Much of Washington's drinking water comes from groundwater.

Once groundwater is contaminated it is difficult, costly, and sometimes impossible to clean up. To achieve good stewardship of Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas, there are eight steps outlined in DOE’s Guidance Document for Critical Aquifer Recharge Areas: Step 1: Identify where groundwater resources are located.

Step 2: Analyze the susceptibility of the natural setting where groundwater occurs.
