New spring monitoring program assesses the health of the state’s aquifers

Several aquifers across the state are experiencing historic levels of decline; we need to keep track of this so we can ensure that there’s enough water for future Texans.

In this program, staff will collect water quality samples and flow rate measurements from every spring to determine the amount of water flowing from the aquifer and to verify the source of the water.
