Groundwater Network

Project Title: NJ002 - Groundwater Network
Project Number: LJ00ACH
Project Chief:
Project Start Date: 01-JAN-1931
Project End Date:

Project Objectives

To collect water-level data sufficient to provide a minimum long-term data base so that the general response of the hydrologic system to natural climatic variations and induced stresses is known and potential problems can be defined early enough to allow proper planning and management. (B) To provide a data base against which the short-term records acquired in areal studies can be analyzed.

Statement of Problem

Long-term water-level records are needed to evaluate the effects of climatic variations on the recharge to and discharge from the groundwater systems, to provide a data base from which to measure the effects of development, to assist in the prediction of future supplies, and to provide data for management of the resource.

Strategy and Approach

Water-level measurements to be made in a network of observation wells tapping all the principal aquifers in the State, and the frequency of measurement ranges from continuous to biannual. Well location, geologic, hydrologic, and construction data to be routinely collected. All data is stored in the USGS NWIS database for ready access to the public and for report generation.
