      Excess soil salinity threatens farming in the San Joaquin Valley. In much of California’s flat, sunny San Joaquin Valley, canals deliver the irrigation water that has made the state an agricultural powerhouse, supplying one-third of vegetables and two-thirds of fruit and nuts eaten in the United States. But along the west side of the valley, some fields are sprouting not crops, but solar. San Joaquin River, river in central California, U.S. It is formed by forks rising on Mount Goddard in the Sierra Nevada and flows southwest and then north-northwest past Stockton to join the Sacramento River above Suisun Bay after a course of miles ( km). It is dammed for hydroelectric power.

Chronic problems of salt, selenium, boron and other naturally occurring elements in surface and groundwater supplies plague agricultural regions throughout the Westside of the San Joaquin Valley. Compounding the problem is the build-up of salty subsurface groundwater resulting from dense clay layers and inadequate natural drainage.

Located in the San Joaquin Valley (Valley) of California, the Kesterson Reservoir (Kesterson) was used to store agricultural drainage water and it was soon determined that the probable cause of the damage to wildlife was high concen­ trations of selenium, derived from the water and water organisms in.

In turn, the San Joaquin River is a source of both agricultural drainage and water quality problems. Agricultural Drainage and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Overview The salt content of drainage water flowing from the Grassland area (, acres of farmland, wildlife refuges and duck clubs) on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley is.

THE DRAINAGE PROBLEM The San Joaquin Valley, one of the world’s most productive agricultural regions, has experienced mounting problems with the management and disposal of agricultural drainage water.

The drainage problem is an outgrowth of naturally saline soils and imported water, as well as the valley’s. The Westside of the San Joaquin Valley includes the San Joaquin River Basin and the Tulare Lake Basin with million acres of mostly irrigated agricultural land.

Historical drainage discharged to the San Joaquin River was about 55 thousand acre-feet (TAF) per year from an estima acres of land with installed subsurface drain.
