Science

The New Jersey Water Science Center's mission is to collect, and disseminate reliable scientific information on issues affecting rivers, lakes, estuaries, groundwater, and water resources across the state of New Jersey and its neighbors. These data provide the scientific knowledge that engineers, planners, and managers can use to make informed water-resources decisions.

Groundwater Response to Earthquakes

Did you know? Earthquakes can affect groundwater levels?

 

We often see a response to large (and sometimes not so large) earthquakes in groundwater levels in wells. The USGS maintains a network of wells for monitoring various things like natural variability in water levels and response to pumping and climate change across the U.S.
