The Santa Clara River (SCR) flowing at the 101 freeway on 1/4/23 at 10:26 a.m. It is looking upstream towards the NE. Upstream of this location on the SCR, our groundwater aquifers are getting recharged, as they are exposed to percolation from surface waters. From what I gather, downstream, there is less permeable land and lower quality shallow aquifers.
