These datasets provide the locations of and groundwater-level altitudes from 273 wells that were used to construct a 2015 potentiometric contour surface of the Sparta-Memphis aquifer. Measurements were made from January through June 2015 and represent synoptic conditions. All wells were cased completely in and screened in the Sparta-Memphis aquifer. Groundwater-level data are also available from the USGS National Water Information System (U.S. Geological Survey, 2017). The groundwater-level change maps for the Sparta-Memphis aquifer are constructed as a point-to-point comparison with wells measured in both 2011 and 2013 and both 2013 and 2015. Wells not measured in both 2011 and 2013 and both 2013 and 2015 were not included in the change maps construction. The 2011-2013 change map contains 261 corresponding wells. The 2013-2015 change map contains 241 corresponding wells.
