Sparta Aquifer Monitor and Sampling

The Union County Water Conservation Board with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency began a study in 2003 with the U.S. Geological Survey, the Union County Conservation District, Burns & McDonnell to monitor the impact of water-level recovery and water-quality characteristics of the Sparta aquifer system in southern Arkansas and northern Louisiana.
  • Eight wells in and around Union County form a ground-water level monitoring network.
  • Water levels are measured in these wells using a pressure transducer, digital data logger and telephone modem.
  • Water-quality samples are collected from 12 wells and analyzed for temperature, specific conductance, and chloride
  • "Real-time" water-level data is available here here
