Why is Water so Important?
Water is one of our most important natural resources and is essential for the development of all life on Earth. Without it, there would be no life on earth. The supply of water available for our use is limited by nature. Although there is plenty of water on earth, it is not always in the right place, at the right time and of the right quality. Adding to the problem is the increasing evidence that chemical wastes improperly discarded yesterday are showing up in our water supplies today. Hydrology has evolved as a science in response to the need to understand the complex water systems of the Earth and help solve water problems. Hydrologists play a vital role in finding solutions to water problems, and interesting and challenging careers are available to those who choose to study hydrology.
Do you have any information on the Monitoring Well Network
Yes, we do… The Monitoring Well Network is a collection of Registered and/or Permitted wells within the District from which water level measurements are collected. Jump on over to our Monitoring Well Network page and get the full scoop!
