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).
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 will… Read more »
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, the… Read more »
The Wellntel Analytics Dashboard (AD) includes new features for maps and spatial data analysis. Maps can now be downloaded as image files. This feature is indispensable for groundwater professionals who rely on network map visuals for reports, communications, and groundwater level analysis. Downloaded maps match the zoom of the currently displayed map on AD and… Read more »
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 endeavor… Read more »
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 Timed… Read more »
The “Operations” tab on the Wellntel Analytics Dashboard will soon be completing its beta testing phase and will be promoted as a stable feature set. When you login to AD as a sponsor you will soon see the tab labeled “Operations” just after the Download tab. Gone are the days of checking off each system… Read more »
The Comal Trinity Groundwater Conservation District is employing Wellntel technology to create a cost-effective and powerful groundwater-monitoring network that will greatly increase hydrogeologic understanding and science-based resource management. Their network build-out began in October 2018 with 4 wells, scaling to 10 in early 2019. “The plan to establish monitoring wells in the Trinity Aquifer has… Read more »
