Bone Spring-Victorio Peak Aquifer Groundwater Availability Model (GAM)
In 2008, the El Paso Water Utilities has completed a study to better understand the potential groundwater yield of the Bone Spring-Victorio Peak Aquifer in support of the regional water planning process. This work resulted in the development and calibration of three groundwater models: the first model looked at the regional structural geology; the second model included groundwater isotope geochemistry data; and the third model was a hybrid of the first two models. In 2016, the Texas Water Development Board adopted the hybrid model as the official Bone Spring-Victorio Peak Aquifer Groundwater Availability Model.
Please contact David Thorkildsen (512-936-0871) for a copy of model files. The model files are available in an electronic format with a small processing fee per CD/DVD.
Model grid cells are geographically assigned to counties, groundwater conservation districts, river basins, groundwater management areas, and regional water planning areas within the model study area using a centroid based approach. The model grid is available in ESRI® shapefile format and comma-delimited text file.
