The Memorandum of Understanding with the State of California Regional Water Quality Control Board allows for wet weather percolation and groundwater testing between January 1 and March 1, and after having received 50% of the average rainfall.
Depth to groundwater determinations can be conducted within ten (10) calendar days following a rainfall of 0.8 inches in a 48 hour period. Sonoma County is divided into 7 geographic areas for this purpose. The amount of rainfall will be posted for each area.
