DISCLAIMER-- The information provided on this page was compiled in and rechecked in early in an effort to check the status of data-delivery efforts among State agencies. The compilation was done using . Wells may have been constructed by drilling, augering, jetting, or even by digging a hole or excavating around a spring or seepage. Out-of-service wells of any type may pose potential safety hazards and threats to ground water quality if not correctly maintained or abandoned (decommissioned).

Steps for Developing a Concentrated Spring. Excavate the land upslope from the spring discharge until three feet of water is flowing. Through various groundwater programs, the USGS actively measures water levels in, or collects data from more than 18, of these wells each year. These wells are measured for a variety of disparate purposes, such as statewide monitoring programs, or more local effects like monitoring well drawdown, hydrologic research, aquifer tests, or even.

Most current data are provisional. The Groundwater database consists of more thanrecords of wells, springs, test holes, tunnels,drains, and excavations in. Pennsylvania has more than a million domestic water wells, plus an unknown number of other types of water wells, boreholes, and springs.

Water well and spring data are available through the Pennsylvania Groundwater Information System (PaGWIS), which is maintained by the DCNR Bureau of Geological Survey. Private Water Wells. Groundwater wells are man-made discharge points. More than a million homeowners in Pennsylvania depend on private water wells for their drinking water needs.

In the commonwealth, protection and maintenance of a private well is the responsibility of the homeowner. Ground-Water Monitoring Wells is intended to assist personnel involved with the design, construction, and installation of ground-water monitoring wells.

This document does not focus on specific regulatory requirements, but instead presents state-of-the-art technology that may be applied in diverse hydrogeologic situations. Oct 16,  · The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is involved in monitoring the Nation's groundwater supplies. A national network of observation wells exists to measure regularly the water levels in wells and to investigate water quality.

Contaminants can be natural or human-induced. View a long list of chemicals and contaminants that can be found in groundwater. The number of wells and springs sampled for ground-water-quality data varies considerably across Pennsylvania.

Of the 24, wells and springs sampled, the greatest concentration of wells and springs is in the southeast (Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties) and in the northwest (Erie County). The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States.

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions.

The USGS Water Resources Mission Area provides water information that is fundamental to national and local economic well-being, protection of life and property, and effective management of the Nation’s water resources. Below, find data and tools relevant to a wide range of water resources and conditions including streamflow, groundwater, water quality, and water use and.

Water quality data from of the monitoring points were analyzed based on lithology, land use types, and additional information such as well depth and geographic location.

Land use descriptions and well depths for monitoring points in the southwestern region of Pennsylvania were not collected. Groundwater Quality and Groundwater Pollution the quality of water in the well, spring, or stream, and who it is whose activities have an impact on it.

The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) does not regulate private wells. However, since DEP receives many questions from homeowners about their privately-owned wells, this page is designed to provide homeowners with information about the following: Well contaminants.

The Integrated Report is submitted to EPA, and is composed of the CWA Section (b) report of the water quality status of all surface waters and the Section (d) list of impaired waters. The Pennsylvania Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report was approved by EPA on January 10, Geological Survey (USGS) legacy data on water quality.

Wells in PaGWIS that have associated USGS water-quality data are those that The “SiteID” column numbers in the Site Info download packages can be used to retrieve water quality data for selected wells.
