Groundwater isn’t static anymore… It is true that groundwater as a natural resource has never been truly static, in the sense that it is constantly moving from points of recharge to points of natural discharge. All components of the hydrological cycle, including groundwater, move continually in response to large-scale physical drivers and the energy dynamics… Read more »

Read about Wellntel in Farm Journal Magazine

Farm Journal’s Chris Bennett has written a terrific piece about how groundwater information — specifically, insights about the supply side — benefits farmers. Traditionally, a technician must measure water levels using special equipment and then seal the well after taking a reading. That data is soon out of date. However, Wellntel is designed to tell… Read more »

Wellntel information improves groundwater science

While the need for more information about groundwater grows, methods or plans to get it have lagged far behind for decades. And while computer models become more powerful every day, verifiably accurate observations to confirm and improve them are expensive and time consuming when you can’t see the resource, as is the case with groundwater….
