Louisiana Active Water Level Network - USGS Groundwater Watch

The USGS Groundwater Watch pages present groundwater level data from wells and discharge data from springs currently in a regular measurement program.  Individual wells can be present in multiple networks. For instance, a well with real time instrumentation that is designed to monitor climate effects will be present in at least 3 networks: Real Time, Climate Response, and Active Water Levels. Springs are presented in their own network and incorporated into the Active Water Level network. Springs are not included in any other networks at this time.
