The majority of ambient groundwater quality monitoring in Arkansas is conducted by DEQ and the United States Geological (USGS) Survey Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center. A Web-based tool for retrieving and analyzing DEQ and USGS groundwater quality data can be accessed at the Arkansas Groundwater-Quality Network.

The Arkansas Groundwater - Quality Network is a web map interface that provides rapid access to the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) NWIS and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) STORET databases of ambient groundwater information.

Arkansas is the fourth largest user of groundwater in the United States, where groundwater accounts for two-thirds of the total water use. Groundwater use in the State increased by percent between and (Holland, ). Several counties in eastern and southern Arkansas have been designated Critical Ground-Water Areas (areas where alluvial aquifer water levels dropped below 50 percent of the original saturated thickness or below the top of the Sparta Sand) by the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission.

The expansion. The Water Quality Planning Branch develops water quality standards for waterways and closely monitors surface water and groundwater across the state. Surface water quality standards are tailored to the state’s six ecoregions. Water monitoring activities include chemical, biological, and.

ARKANSAS Ground-Water Quality In Arkansas, ground water is the major source for public- supply and rural self-supplied systems; about 55 percent of the population (fig. 1) depends on ground water (Harold Seifert, Arkan­ sas Department of Health, written commun., ).

Water qualityCited by: 1. The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States.

Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders.

Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions. Water in Arkansas is an important issue encompassing the conservation, protection, management, distribution and use of the water resource in the state.

Arkansas contains a mixture of groundwater and surface water, with a variety of state and federal agencies responsible for the regulation of the water travelingartsfiesta.com accordance with agency rules, state, and federal law, the state's water treatment.

Water resources data reported for the water year for Arkansas consist of records of discharge and water quality (physical measurements and chemical concentrations) of streams, water quality of lakes, and ground-water levels and ground-water quality.

Data from selected sites in Missouri and Oklahoma also are included. AGUA is a non-profit organization established by a group of well users. A Board elected by the shareholders operates the association. Its goals are to provide augmentation water, through lease or purchase, to replace out of priority depletions, tributary to the Arkansas, to usable stateline flows and senior surface water rights on the Arkansas and on Fountain Creek.

If you don't know which stations to look for, you can search to view all stations within a county. A "critical groundwater area" is an area determined by the Commission to have significant groundwater depletion or degradation. Designating an area indicates that the Commission may later determine that limiting groundwater withdrawals by users within the critical groundwater area may become necessary to maximize the area's remaining groundwater resources.
