New TWDB Daily Groundwater Levels Website Launched

AUSTIN – Today Texans are more aware than ever of the importance of groundwater. As part of ongoing efforts to synthesize and communicate water-related data to scientists, policy makers and the public, the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today announced its Water Data for Texas website now includes groundwater data. The website has been a source of information on reservoirs and drought since November 2012.

TWDB’s Recorder Well Program has more than doubled in the past 15 years, partially because more groundwater conservation districts are participating in the program. TWDB currently maintains 184 recorders in 79 counties. In addition to the TWDB network, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Edwards Aquifer Authority also maintain their own networks of recorder wells in the state. All of these data, including the U.S. Geological Survey and Edwards Aquifer Authority networks, are now available at waterdatafortexas.org.
