Monitoring Programs

The LENRD monitors the groundwater across the 15-county district.  Here you will find information about the data that has been collected from the monitoring program.

Groundwater Levels

In order to better protect our water resources, the Lower Elkhorn NRD measures roughly 250 wells scattered across 13 counties of our district. Many of these wells have been measured each spring and fall since 1976.  These groundwater level measurements help the District understand how long term groundwater levels change over time.
