This polygon shapefile depicts Williamson Act Parcels with an ongoing contract within the unincorporated areas of the County of Santa Clara, California. The California Land Conservation Act, better known as the Williamson Act, has been the California’s agricultural land protection program since its enactment in1965. The Williamson Act preserves agricultural and open space lands through property tax incentives and voluntary restrictive use contracts. Private landowners voluntarily restrict their land to agricultural and compatible open space uses under minimum ten year rolling term contracts with local governments. In return, restricted parcels are assessed for property tax purposes at a rate consistent with their actual use, rather than potential market value. The purpose of the Williamson Act is to preserve the County’s prime soils and intensive high value agricultural operations, and to discourage premature and unnecessary conversion of agricultural land to urban use.

This point shapefile depicts centroid locations of 1000 foot interval Creek Stations representing dynamic segmentation measures that group data according to specific conditions for the County of Santa Clara, California. They were created for the route system called creeks01_route (PolylineM shapefile and scvwd_hydro.mdb Personal Geodatabase). Dynamic segmentation, or linear referencing, is the process of computing map locations of linearly referenced data (for example, attributes stored in a table) at run time so they can be displayed on a map, queried, and analyzed using a GIS. The dynamic segmentation process enables multiple sets of attributes to be associated with any portion of a line feature without segmenting the underlying feature.

This polyline shapefile depicts centerlines for the Santa Clara and Llagas groundwater subbasins confinend boundary in the County of Santa Clara, California. These boundaries outline the portions of subbasins that contain confined aquifers. An aquifer that is bounded above and below by formations of distinctly lower permeability than that of the aquifer itself potentially resulting in the aquifer being confined under pressure greater than atmospheric pressure. If such a confined aquifer is tapped by a well, water will rise above the top of the aquifer and may even flow from the well onto the land surface. Water confined in this way is said to be under artesian pressure, and the aquifer is called an artesian aquifer.The Santa Clara Valley Water District manages an integrated water resources system that includes the supply of clean, safe water, flood protection and stewardship of streams on behalf of Santa Clara County's 1.8 million residents.
