West Kern Water District video captures unique venting from recharging aquifer

With water running through the Kern River, local aquifers are being recharged and West Kern Water District General Manager Harry Starkey, a frequent guest on “The Richard Beene Show,” showed an example of how that’s happening.

In a Facebook video, Starkey showed misty air venting out of a well as water began to fill the aquifer near Taft. In western Kern County, thousands of acres of land are covered by winter rain and snow runoff that is recharging the aquifer.

“The venting is kind of a unique phenomenon associated with the recharge of water,” Starkey wrote in a message to KERN Radio.
