UDaily: Delaware Geological Survey joins National Groundwater Monitoring Network effort

The Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) at the University of Delaware has signed an agreement with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to become a data provider for the National Ground-Water Monitoring Network (NGWMN).

NGWMN is a consortium of state and local agencies and the USGS that was established in 2013 to create a single point of access for scientists, engineers, policy makers and the public to view and acquire important physical and chemical data on the nation’s groundwater resources.

The network will ultimately allow users to view groundwater data across state lines to observe trends in groundwater quality and availability in a local, regional or national context. NGWMN resources are managed by the USGS Center for Data Analytics and can be accessed at this website.
