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 see the GAM files download page for a copy of the model files.
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.
