Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation

Groundwater-dependent growers should establish monitoring networks early in the water year to quantify saturated thickness before the growing season. A direct relation exists between the saturated thickness of an aquifer and the groundwater volume available for extraction constrained by regulation and/or principles of sustainability. Under natural conditions, the water table of an unconfined aquifer willContinue reading “Farmers should track aquifer saturated thickness to plan crops and irrigation”

Tagged water-level measurements provide greater insight into network aquifer characteristics and pumping activity

Wellntel systems collect detailed data on pumping activity, tagging these data to be useful in understanding the groundwater aquifer and the operational characteristics of network wells. Data Tagging The data that can be collected, tagged, and displayed in real time are: the water level in the well during each timed measurement – tagged as TimedContinue reading “Tagged water-level measurements provide greater insight into network aquifer characteristics and pumping activity”

Pumping Influence In Central Texas Trinity Aquifer Revealed In Real Time

The Comal Trinity Groundwater Conservation District is employing Wellntel technology to create a cost-effective and powerful groundwater-monitoring network that will greatly increase hydrogeologic understanding and science-based resource management. Their network build-out began in October 2018 with 4 wells, scaling to 10 in early 2019. “The plan to establish monitoring wells in the Trinity Aquifer hasContinue reading “Pumping Influence In Central Texas Trinity Aquifer Revealed In Real Time”

Groundwater insights allow businesses to meet sustainability goals

It was once thought that groundwater monitoring would be the exclusive purview of government scientists, agencies and regulators. Wellntel upends that premise by enlisting, teaching and enabling citizens and community groups to themselves become collectors of groundwater data. We’ve seen that businesses are as interested as citizens and communities in sustainability, and need groundwater facts to meet their profit goals, their goalsContinue reading “Groundwater insights allow businesses to meet sustainability goals”

Rainfall impacting groundwater levels in Central California

Wellntel owners in central California are tracking the impacts of heavy rainfalls on groundwater levels in their wells. In a dramatic weather turn, the skies have opened up over an area that has suffered many months of drought. In Paso Robles, for example, there has been a total of seventeen inches of rainfall since October, with eleven of itContinue reading “Rainfall impacting groundwater levels in Central California”

Read about Wellntel in Farm Journal Magazine

Farm Journal’s Chris Bennett has written a terrific piece about how groundwater information — specifically, insights about the supply side — benefits farmers. Traditionally, a technician must measure water levels using special equipment and then seal the well after taking a reading. That data is soon out of date. However, Wellntel is designed to tellContinue reading “Read about Wellntel in Farm Journal Magazine”
