2019 Fall Static Water Levels are up from the fall of 2018! Last year the fall colored water level map had changes that ranged from declines shown in red, and rises shown in blue. This fall there was difficulty finding enough differing shades of blue to depict the water table rises across the district! On the change map the weighted average rise for Geologic Unit 1 was +2.57, for Geologic Unit 2 the change was a +1.56. This is the 2nd largest fall rise, the District averaged an increase of +3.20 feet from the fall of 1992 to 1993.
