Repetto Formation, Los Angeles Basin (11)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

11 Flow Direction:

No aquifer studies have been done of the Repetto Formation in the Los Angeles Basin, and therefore flow directions are poorly understood. However, models of other formations in the basin (U.S. Geological Survey, 1996) indicate southwestward fluid flow into the deep part of the basin from the shallow recharge area from the northeast. The direction of ground-water movement in these formations is inferred to be diverted by northwest-trending faults such as the Inglewood Fault.
