OWRB Groundwater Monitoring Sites & Data

A major task associated with OWRB hydrologic studies is to characterize groundwater flow and response of each aquifer. This is accomplished by installing water-level recording devices (recorders) in unused groundwater wells. For each study, OWRB staff install about a dozen recorders throughout the aquifer/study area. The agency currently maintains 41 such sites.

In 2004, the OWRB initiated a partnership with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey (OCS) involving the installation of real-time groundwater observation wells at the Acme and El Reno Mesonet sites. Since then, the OWRB has installed observation wells at additional Mesonet sites in an effort to expand the network. Provisional real-time data from the Mesonet sites are available through the Mesonet website.

Continuous groundwater recorder sites are maintained by OWRB staff who visit each site at least every three months to download and quality control the data. Both current and historical water level data is available to view or download by selecting the individual number for each site in the table below. Data accessed directly from the Mesonet website is considered provisional.
