Groundwater Information and Data
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) active water level network for Montana includes continuous and periodic measurements at wells throughout the state. Satellite telemetry equipment is installed at two of the wells and transmit real-time data. Information from USGS-maintained wells is served via the Internet through NWISWeb, the National Water Information System Web Interface.
The USGS ‘Groundwater Watch’ web pages display these wells and provide basic statistics about the water-level data.
- Active Water-Level Network:Quick look:
The Active Groundwater Level Network contains water levels and well information from more than 20,000 wells that have been measured by the USGS or USGS cooperators at least once within the past 365 days. This network includes all of these wells, regardless of measurement frequency, aquifer monitored, or the monitoring objective. For more information about this topic, click now.()

- Climate Response Network: Quick look:
The USGS maintains a network of wells to monitor the effects of droughts and other climate variability on groundwater levels. The network consists of a national network of about 140 wells monitored as part of the Groundwater Resources Program, supplemented by wells in some States monitored as part of the Cooperative Water Program.

- Real-Time Network Quick look:
Real-time data typically are recorded at 15-60 minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 1 to 4 hours, depending on the data relay technique used. Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events. Data from real-time sites are relayed to USGS offices via satellite, telephone, and/or radio and are available for viewing within minutes of arrival.
