Calling all Well Owners!


By on Thu, July 30, 2009

Phase 3 of the Midcoast Groundwater Study, which has recently been discussed at meetings of the Midcoast Community Council and the Montara Water and Sanitary District, will fill some of the data gaps necessary to help us all better understand Midcoast groundwater resources now that we are in the third consecutive dry year.  Time is of the essence to collect data about groundwater during drought conditions.  The Resource Conservation District is looking for landowners who are interested in participating in this study.  We would like to monitor wells that:
-Have no pumps, or the pumps are inactive
-Are near vacant parcels if possible or near streams/ wetlands
-Are not near nurseries

We will install a gage into the well that is about the length of a pen and an inch thick.  It will collect continuous data about water levels which can then be downloaded once or twice a year.

If you think you might be a good fit, or just want more information about the study, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
