The proposed Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria casino on the outskirts of Rohnert Park will have a huge negative effect on groundwater. An installation this big, with hotel rooms, pools, spas, restaurants, wet bars, lawns, gardens and other water consuming operations all drawing well water, will deplete a water table that Rohnert Park has already forced into serious overdraft. The plan includes multiple thousand-foot wells.

Rohnert Park does not appear to be reducing reliance on groundwater. The city agreed to do this in a legal settlement with the Penngrove community when it lost in court. But now Rohnert Park appears prepared to allow a 360 acre casino to drill way down into an already depleted aquifer and reduce the water table even farther.
