Groundwater Levels at Selected Observation Wells in the South Coast of Puerto Rico

Depth-to-water is measured periodically to evaluate hydrologic conditions at important aquifers throughout Puerto Rico. The water-level measurements from observation wells can be computed to understand the hydrologic stresses acting on aquifers and how these stresses affect groundwater conditions.

Hydrologic Conditions of Selected Reservoirs in Puerto Rico

The following graphs show water surface elevations above NGVD 1929 in selected reservoirs for several years, including 2015. The purpose of these graphs is to compare water surface elevations during 2015 with water surface elevations observed during years when documented droughts have occurred.

Reported and inventoried crop and irrigated acreage in Lee County, Florida, 1978-2018

A detailed table summarizing the irrigated acreage by crop type and irrigation system was developed for the 2018 growing season (November 2017 and September 2018) for Lee County, Florida. The acreage totals presented are derived from the results of a cooperative project that mapped and field-verified irrigated fields in Lee County, Florida. In addition, the table provides acreage totals by...
