DWR personnel recognize that we can not possibly monitor enough wells state-wide to answer all the water quantity related questions, so we encourage county governments and others to develop local monitoring well networks. If they choose, those network coordinators can store their monitoring data in our data base system. If that is of interest please contact the Division for more information. If you have initiated that process already, you may enter the data processing area following this link.
ground water branch symbolThese databases are "works-in-progress" and are made available to the general public after best efforts to screen out errors -- but we may have missed a few. We encourage everyone who uses this data to help us check for mistakes or omissions (email us if you find problems). Also, please contact us if you would like to donate information to be incorporated in our databases. The "quad" designation definition and a conversion program between latitude & longitude, state plane and quad is available. All latitudes and longitudes are in decimal degree format and GPSed wells use NAD 83 (horizontal) and NAVD88 (vertical). Ground water climatic response is best seen in the Drought Indicator Wells subset of the network. Access geophysical logs, aquifer characteristics, and hydrogeology databases or the main database access page. Individual maps for the DWR well sites are available as pdf files (using county and site links above). Combined county location maps and well site maps are also available in pdf files.
