Stanford researchers have developed a computational tool called AquaCharge that facilitates planning augmented spreading basin systems by optimizing technical designs. This project will apply AquaCharge to case studies of California’s Santa Clara Valley and the Central Valley city of Fresno, comparing insights to draw general lessons about planning these systems.
