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.
Croplands adjacent to perennial and seasonal streams, ponds and wetlands can be enrolled in the buffer strip program. This program is designed to filter agrichemicals such as fertilizer and pesticides before they enter surface and groundwater supplies.
Land eligible for enrollment in this program is cropland adjacent to perennial streams, intermittent streams, wetlands or permanent bodies of water or existing buffer strips established after January 1, 1996 along these areas.
