Sustainable Groundwater Management in the Village of Richfield, Southeastern Wisconsin

The Village of Richfield is singular in its proactive approach to sustainable groundwater management. Starting 16 years ago with their 2004 Groundwater Protection Ordinance and the development of their groundwater monitoring program, Richfield has been leading the state of Wisconsin with a data-informed understanding of community hydrogeology and data-driven development decisions. At the beginning, andContinue reading “Sustainable Groundwater Management in the Village of Richfield, Southeastern Wisconsin”

Monitoring groundwater levels is fundamental to recognizing and understanding drought

A Wellntel network is the perfect platform on which to design and implement local groundwater-monitoring programs and to enable local experts to identify and quantify groundwater droughts and to manage the impacts.

How to Upload Data for Storage and Analysis on Wellntel Analytics Dashboard

As of January 2020, any type of water information (with a time-stamp) can be stored permanently and can be integrated and analyzed in Wellntel’s Analytics Dashboard (AD).

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”
