Indian Tribes Look for Alternative Water Sources

October 17, 2011

SAN DIEGO, Calif.—The La Jolla Band of Luiseno Indians has selected SCS Engineers to complete a hydrogeological study of the La Jolla Indian Reservation western region. The study is being completed to identify new supply wells that will meet the Tribe’s water needs.

Currently, the La Jolla Indian Reservation is a federal reservation of Luiseño Indians in Northern San Diego County.  The reservation consists of 9,998 acres and is located at the foothills of Palomar Mountain, a semi-wilderness area with the San Luis Rey River running through it.

Mr. Charles Houser, a certified hydrogeologist and engineering geologist with SCS, is serving as the Project Manager. He is being supported by Mr. Tom Wright, a Project Geologist with SCS. Mr. Houser has completed similar studies for the Jacumba Community Services District, Guatay Mutual Benefits Company and the County of San Diego.
