REPORT SUMMARY A large amount of data was collected and numerous studies were reviewed for this report.  Groundwater level monitoring, stream flow measurements, and extent of flow mapping were conducted monthly at several locations along the lower portion of Cienega Creek and its tributaries.  Data collection also included diurnal measurements.  This report compares groundwater and surface water trends, as well as seasonal trends.  It also discusses the use of a groundwater flow model to show the impact of development near Cienega Creek.  Continuation of monthly monitoring is recommended.
