City of Jackson Ground-Water Monitoring

Project Chief: David Burt
Partners: City of Jackson, MS
Period of Project: 1973 - present

Long-term water-level records are needed to evaluate the effects of climatic variations on the recharge to and discharge from the ground-water systems, to provide a data base from which to measure the effects of development, to assist in the prediction of future supplies, and to provide data for management of the resource.

The objective of this project is to collect water-level data sufficient to provide a minimum long-term data base so that the general response of the hydrologic system to natural climatic variations and induced stresses is known and potential problems can be defined early enough to allow proper planning and management, and to provide a data base against which the short-term records acquired in areal studies can be analyzed.

Water-level measurements are made monthly at 10 wells and semi-annually at 7 additional wells in the Jackson Metro area in cooperation with the City of Jackson. This information is valuable to city planners in assessing water availability issues.

The map below shows the wells which are currently utilized in this project. To access individual well data, select a well and then click on the link to access water-level data. Press the "Clear Wells" button to clear all wells from the map, "Show All Wells" to display all of the wells, and the "Reset Map" button to return to the original map extent with all wells displayed.
