Monitoring Of Groundwater Levels And Surface-Water Quality At The South Well Field, Franklin County, Ohio

The City of Columbus operates 5 high-capacity collector wells to extract groundwater for drinking-water supply. To assist the City, the USGS monitors water levels in 5 observation wells and operates a water-quality monitor on the Scioto River where specific conductance, temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity are measured on an hourly basis. In addition, groundwater-level synoptic...

Urban Hydrology Stormwater Management

Hydrogeologic reconnaissance, well inventory, and site-specific aquifer test data are needed in order for managers
to assess whether use of stormwater injection wells is technically or economically feasible for Class V underground
injection, file necessary permit applications, and begin the process of developing the necessary engineering design
specifications. Sanitation...
