Ground Water Monitoring Network

Local residents in Wilson, WY, noticed increased local ground water levels. Home owners speculated they were observing human caused changes to the local hydrology. As a response, the State Engineer's Office, together with other state, federal and local agencies, embarked on a multi-year ground water study.  The study focused on the Wilson area, and was an effort to understand what was causing the increased local ground water levels, and better understand the region's groundwater.

Beginning in 2009, the Teton Conservation District, in collaboration with Teton County, took over responsibility for monitoring the well network. Together, TCD and the County installed pressure transducers to continuously monitor groundwater levels and temperatures.

The map below depicts the locations where groundwater data has been collected. If you have questions about groundwater elevation data that may be available in your area, please email the Water Resource Specialist at carlin@tetonconservation.org.
