    A seasonal decrease in ground-water storage results, as indicated by declining water levels in wells. In winter, freezing of the soil prevents recharge, which again causes a decline in storage. In early spring, frequent precipitation coupled with water from snowmelt causes a rapid increase in storage and a . The study connected those wells with high contaminant levels to specific types of bedrock like granite, mafic rock and peletic rock. One of several towns that fall into one of these bedrock areas.

    Water resources data for Minnesota, water year Water data report (Annual), 1 October September Private Wells. There are approximately , private residential wells in Connecticut that serve about 23% of the State’s population, more than , people (based on census). Private wells supplying residential homes for domestic use are not currently regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    Abstract. This report includes records on both surface and ground water in the State. Specifically, it contains: (1) discharge records for 52 streamflow-gaging stations and for 38 partial-record streamflow stations and miscellaneous sites; (2) stage-only records for 4 tidal-gaging stations; (3) water-quality records for 17 streamflow-gaging stations, for 18 ungaged stream sites, and. As part of the joint research project, DPH, with the help of local health officials, collected and analyzed water samples from private wells in Connecticut. The lab results indicated that seven percent of the private well samples tested for Arsenic or Uranium at levels higher than Maximum Contaminant Levels, which are regulated in public water supplies and newly.

The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions.

We grew up either in big cities where there was a public water supply, or in small towns or on farms where the water came from wells.

But there are some people to whom finding a new supply of water is vitally important. Baldwin, Helene L.; McGuinness, C.L.

The depth to the water table can change (rise or fall) depending on the time of year. During the late winter and spring when accumulated snow starts to melt and spring rainfall is plentiful, water on the surface infiltrates into the ground and the water table rises.

When water-loving plants start to grow again in the spring and precipitation gives way to hot, dry summers, the.

Geological Survey water- data on the occurrence of ground water in Connecticut, was under the direct supervision of R. Cushman, geologist. When water levels drop below the levels of the pump intakes, then wells will begin to pump air - they will "go dry." Pumping a well lowers the water level around the well to form a cone of depression in the water table.

If the cone of depression extends to other nearby wells, the water level in those wells will be lowered. Groundwater is a critical source of water in New York State.

Learn about groundwater including basic information, Primary and Principal Aquifers, groundwater resource mapping and quality monitoring, Long Island aquifers, the Divison of Water recommended pump test procedures, water supply well decommissioning recommendations, and the water well driller program.

They studied wells in Sherman, Connecticut, where marble rock is predominant, and did not find higher levels of radium and radon. “While radium and radon mobilization is a serious concern, it all stems from these salt levels that we’ve seen increasing over time.

I’ve examined a hundred years of records of salting in Connecticut. The study of the ground water of Connecticut, the results of which are presented in the following pages, was begun in with the collec­ tion and examination of well and spring records.

USGS groundwater Site in Montgomery County, Virginia is well known to display water-level fluctuations as a result of large earthquakes worldwide.

The measurement frequency in USGS groundwater Site in Tolland County, Connecticut was recently changed to every five minutes, in order to enable the Hydrogeophysics Branch where it is located to better.

A well is an excavation or structure created in the ground by digging, driving, or drilling to access liquid resources, usually oldest and most common kind of well is a water well, to access groundwater in underground well water is drawn up by a pump, or using containers, such as buckets, that are raised mechanically or by hand.

Water can also be injected back into the. Connecticut Network wells depicted on the Real-Time Groundwater Level Network location map Note: Color shading in the table below indicates multiple wells that plot as a single point on the state location map above.

On average, more than 8, new records are added each year. View or download data for a particular well or spring, or for multiple wells or springs. If your water does not come from a town or city water system, you are using a private drinking water source.

There are three main sources of private drinking water: drilled wells, dug wells, and springs. If you think there is an issue with your private drinking water: Contact the Drinking Water Program for treatment options or health effects of contaminants in drinking water.
