Abstract: The Santa Clara County Flood Control and Water District has the power 'to levy and collect a ground water charge for the production of water from the ground water supplies within a zone or zones of the District which will benefit from the recharge of underground water supplies or the distribution of imported water in such zone or zones.' Zone W-2 has been established as the area which would receive this benefit. Only those wells which produce from water-bearing formations benefiting from recharge or distribution of imported water should be included in Zone W-2. The geologic and hydrologic characteristics of the valley and the adjacent foothills determine the extent of the ground water basin, and thus the zone." -- Introduction.
