Installation of multiple-depth monitoring well site

Installation of multiple-depth monitoring well site

Detailed Description

Multiple-depth monitoring wells provide critically important data to aid in understanding complex hydrogeology, such as that found in the Temecula area. A major ele- ment of the present USGS study is to install multiple-depth wells through- out the Temecula-Murrieta ground- water basin in order to map the sub- surface geologic layers, to define water-quality differences with depth, and to provide longterm monitoring of groundwater levels. These data will aid local water agencies in opti- mal management of the basin. Beginning Tuesday, February 19, 2013, a multiple-depth well will be installed in Temecula Creek Park. The well will be about 1,500 feet deep, and will have five separate two-inch PVC piezometers, installed to selected depths. These piezometers will be monitored for groundwater levels and sampled for groundwater quality. The well site will be a per- manent installation and will provide data for decades.
