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”

The 2019 Texas Drought – Water-Levels Observed in Pumping Wells

In the late summer and early autumn of 2019, Texas experienced severe to extreme drought over portions of Central, Southern, and eastern West Texas Regions. 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”

Network Design Critical To Revealing Groundwater and Surface Water Interactions

California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act of 2014 (SGMA) requires that Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) manage groundwater resources to avoid significant and unreasonable adverse impacts on beneficial uses of interconnected surface water1, 2. Surface Water Depletion is one of the six SGMA Sustainability Factors that GSAs and their Groundwater Sustainability Plans (GSPs) must consider and endeavorContinue reading “Network Design Critical To Revealing Groundwater and Surface Water Interactions”

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”

Wellntel Network Operations on Analytics Dashboard
