DNR Well Monitoring

SWCD staff monitor and measure 5 DNR Observation Wells throughout the county. 

Each well is measured several times throughout the year with a steel tape. The tape is lowered down each well to a predetermined length. 

The length of the tape that is wet is recorded. 

Records for the measured wells are entered onto the DNR database and data is utilized to understand the changes that are happening at those well locations regarding ground water.
