October 2016: According to data as of Spring 2016, 90 of California's 236 groundwater sub-basins are not producing groundwater measurements. California has experienced a dramatic decrease in overall active groundwater measurement stations from peak drought years of 2014 and 2015 to today.

Pictured below: Groundwater measurement station counts from 2011-2016. 

The map on the left shows the percent of loss in active groundwater measurement stations that each sub basin has experienced (from the highest recorded number of active stations between 2011-2016 to the recorded number of active stations in 2016). The darkest green areas have experienced no loss in active stations. The darkest red areas have not recorded measurements from any station so far this year. Hover over each sub basin on the map to see details about stations.

The graph at the top right shows the total number of active groundwater measurement stations by year, from 2011-2016. 

The map on the bottom right shows the loss in groundwater year over year between 2011 and 2016 to show the areas most severely impacted by the drought.
