Fall Ground Water Levels Mostly Up

Fall Ground Water Levels Mostly Up

November 13, 2019

Each year, LPSNRD measures the water levels in wells we have networked throughout the district.  Measurements are made in the spring and the fall.  Since fall levels may still be adjusting from the irrigation season, spring levels are generally used for annual comparisons.  Fall measurements, though, are indicative of how well aquifers are responding to recent irrigation.  The chart at right shows fall 2019 levels are mostly higher, compared to a year ago.  Above average rainfall in the spring of 2019 may be a contributor.

LPSNRD has five areas where useable amounts of good quality ground water are generally available. The remainder of the district has been designated as the Remaining Area.  See a ground water reservoirs map HERE.
