Approximately 400,000 acres in the San Joaquin Valley are classified as drainage problem areas. Levels of soil salinity detrimental to crop yield exist in these areas because of saline high water tables. One water district serving 264,000 acres needing drainage estimated that their production loss caused by drainage problems was about $17 million in 1981.
