Short description:
Ground-water monitoring water-well locations in Indiana, 2008 (1:24,000) - Shows ground-water-monitoring-well locations in Indiana. Produced using data provided by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Water and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Information System (NWIS). The data set includes records for wells that are currently active and inactive. Ground-water levels in aquifers throughout the state are used in conjunction with climate and soil-moisture data to monitor drought severity in Indiana. URL links to United States Geological Survey (USGS) Web pages for individual monitoring wells in Indiana are provided in the attribute table. The links provide additional station information and access to water-level measurements collected in the monitoring-well network.
