Repetto Formation, Los Angeles Basin (10)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

10 Fluid Residence Time:

Maps of fluid residence time from Repetto aquifers are not documented in the literature. However, faults that have been mapped extensively in the Los Angeles Basin are inferred to be barriers to fluid flow in the Repetto Formation (Redin, 1991; Wright, 1991), which are inferred to impact fluid residence time significantly.
