Description

Groundwater Safe Yield versus Sustained Yield Planning Many governments have policies to assure the safe yield of groundwater from important aquifers. Safe yield strategies are defined to avoid unacceptable aquifer states from year to year. However, they often allow undesirable states to occur within a year. Sustained yield strategies are intended to overcome that weakness. To achieve that, sustained yield strategies often allow less groundwater pumping than safe yield strategies. Contrasted Cache Valley safe yield and sustained yield strategies demonstrate this generality.
