Bell County Monitor Wells

The District monitors the static water level of numerous wells throughout Bell County quarterly in order to closely monitor the aquifer levels as part of our statutory responsibility.

A static water level (often simply called “the water level”) is the distance from ground level down to the water in your well. The meaning of “static” is the normal “resting” level of water — i.e. when you are not pumping and haven’t pumped recently. If you have pumped, then the water level, of course, is changing as the well fills back up to the static level —- not the time to measure depth. (The speed at which your well refills – e.g. three gallons per minute – is called your “Recovery Rate”.)

District staff performs the quarterly readings and then publishes them below once the data is compiled. These are not continual monitoring wells, but are updated quarterly.

The graphs below are hourly readings of selected District wells monitored by the Texas Water Development Board through electronic equipment. All water levels are provisional and subject to revision.
