Kansas River at Lawrence.

Kansas River Index Well Network

In the spring and summer of 2018, the KGS established a network of observations wells in the Kansas River alluvial aquifer. The wells operate under the Kansas Index Well Program to provide continuously recorded water levels of the aquifer throughout the year. Funding for the project was made possible by the Kansas Water Plan Fund and the USGS National Groundwater Monitoring Network.
