|Please Note--The 2014 KGS and DWR cooperative water level measurements have been loaded into WIZARD but are considered provisional at this time|
The WIZARD database is a repository of information on freshwater wells drilled into aquifer in Kansas. WIZARD consolidates information formerly maintained by several local, state, and federal agencies. Most of the data stored has been taken from the U.S. Geological Survey's GWSI (Ground Water Site Inventory) and with the exception of those wells included in the Kansas monitoring well network, none of this information has been verified. About two-thirds of the annual water-level data are now submitted by local GMDs and the Division of Water Resources, with the other third being updated by the KGS. WIZARD is owned and operated by the Kansas Geological Survey.
How Are Wells Measured?--KGS Public Information Circular (PIC) 12 describes the Kansas water-level measurement program.
KGS Exploration Services--The Exploration Services section of the KGS has a site describing their work on the water-level measurement program. Use the "Water Well Project" link.
FGDC Metadata information (data about data) is available for this database.
