The Fayette County Groundwater Conservation District is beginning new phase in groundwater level monitoring. The District intends to utilize unused rig supply wells located at oil/gas sites to monitor the water levels in the aquifers within the County. This is in addition to the ongoing volunteer water wells being monitored. Monitoring static water levels, or water levels not affected by active pumping from the well, at these sites allows for a much more precise measurement of the true water levels in our aquifers.
Data collected from these sights will provide scientific information and a factual basis needed for State required water planning by the District and Desired Future Conditions compliance. Additionally, the data is critical for identifying any areas of concern.
Granting the District permission to enter your property and have access to the unused rig supply well associated with the site, will allow us to conduct an evaluation of the water well for suitability for the program, install a static water level monitoring station if the location is suitable, and periodically return to the station to collect data. If you have an oil/gas site on your property and would like to participate in this program, please contact the District office.
