Fall Level Measurements this week! (Aug 24-28, 2015)

The District’s Water Resources Technician, Aaron Gurecki, has been out all week measuring groundwater levels. We will quality check the data and results will be available next week.

There are 150 wells in the network, about 100 have been monitored since the 1950’s. We have a good history of our aquifer’s response to drought.
