GAMA – Groundwater Ambient Monitoring & Assessment Program
GeoTracker GAMA Groundwater Information System
|GeoTracker GAMA is an online groundwater information system that gives you access to water quality data and connects you to groundwater basics and protection information. This online database integrates groundwater quality data from multiple sources, which are searchable by chemical or location with results displayed on an interactive Google maps interface.

GeoTracker GAMA has data from over 200,000 discrete well locations, including over 100 million analytical results, well logs and water levels - since quality and quantity are both important factors in evaluating the state of our groundwater resources. The use of Google Maps is not only a familiar mapping interface - it also helps you to only include groundwater data located within your map view’s current zoom level.
This online information system integrates, standardizes, and provides tools to analyze several datasets, from multiple groundwater levels. The map below defines and describes how data can vary by groundwater level and sources.
Note: Monitoring of public drinking water quality is the responsibility of the California Department of Public Health. The State of California does not regulate water quality in private domestic wells.

GeoTracker GAMA currently integrates data from State and Regional Water Boards, California Department of Public Health, Department of Pesticide Regulation, Department of Water Resources, US Geological Survey, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
