Water-levels along the Lower Platte and Elkhorn Rivers, Nebraska, 2016-2017

This data set contains two sets of measured water-level data collected in an area between the Platte and Elkhorn Rivers just above their confluence. Surface-water and groundwater-level data were collected for two synoptic water-level surveys during a low-groundwater demand period in fall of 2016 and a high groundwater demand period in summer of 2017. Elevations of surface-water features were...
