In early 2007 the Utah State Legislature requested that the UGS establish a groundwater monitoring-well network in Utah’s
west desert, in response to proposed water-development projects in east-central Nevada and west-central Utah.
Groundwater monitoring sites include wells, surface-flow gages to measure spring discharge, and shallow piezometers in
wetlands established as part of a habitat inventory. Wells and piezometers are equipped with pressure transducers and data
loggers that are downloaded quarterly. Surface-flow data are relayed to the Department of Natural Resources in real time via radio telemetry.

one or more of the following: transducer, drilling, and chemical data and lithologic, geophysical,
flow, and temperature profile logs where available.
