Groundwater Levels at Selected Observation Wells in the South Coast of Puerto Rico


Depth-to-water is measured periodically to evaluate hydrologic conditions at important aquifers throughout Puerto Rico. Using this information water-level measurements from observation wells can be computed to understand the hydrologic stresses acting on aquifers and how these stresses affect groundwater conditions. The schematic below shows depth-to-water information for selected continuous recording observation wells along the South Coast aquifer, Puerto Rico.
