Groundwater Levels Rise 1.2 Feet in Upper Big Blue NRD

Edgar's picture

During May 2016, the NRD measured over 500 observation wells throughout the District and then averaged the data of all these wells. Observation wells are measured in the spring of each year, allowing the water table to rebound from the previous irrigation season. The observation wells measured are equally distributed geographically throughout the District to provide an accurate profile of the District average. Overall, the spring 2016 average measurement for the groundwater level change shows a rise of 1.2 feet from last spring.
