Water Level Monitorning 

  

                                                   - 0 Represents Groundlevel

Keeping track of changes in groundwater levels is one of the NRD's many responsibilities.  While most areas of the Upper Loup NRD have abundant groundwater, this resource is not unlimited. 

With the help of cooperating landowners, the Upper Loup NRD has established a district-wide network of observation wells to monitor changes in groundwater levels.  There are currently 100 observation wells measured on a biannual basis, spring and fall when not in use.
If you have a irrigation well and are not currently part of this network and would like to be, please contact our office.
   
Benefits of Monitoring Groundwater Levels:

  • ·  Determine annual and long-term changes of groundwater in storage
  • ·  Estimate recharge rates
  • ·  Determine direction and gradient of groundwater flow
