Hydrogeologic Evaluation, Proposed R3 Project Mojave River Channel Area, 
Vicinity Hesperia, San Bernardino County, California

Prepared by Richard C. Slade & Associates

Issued 2008

This report provides the findings and conclusions of the hydrogeologic evaluation of the proposed Regional Recharge and Recovery Project that is located along/near the channel of the Mojave River in the vicinity of Hesperia.  The project involves the construction of a put-and-take series of wells and transmission pipelines and the use of existing and proposed artificial spreading basins. The plan includes storing and artificially recharging surface water in new/proposed spreading basins in/along the Upper reach of the Mojave River, and extracting it at several new wells to the west and east of the river for conveyance to Victorville, Adelanto, Southern California Logistics Airport, and the Apple Valley region.
