That drought is captured in weekly map images provided by the United States Drought Monitor, through a partnership between the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, theContinue reading “The 2019 Texas Drought – Water-Levels Observed in Pumping Wells”
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”

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 That data is soon out of date.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”
