|Local Groundwater Static Level Monitoring Network, Angie Ketscher is the Groundwater Technician for the Council, she is out and about identifying wells to be measured for the Local Monitoring Network. Landowners who agree to have their wells monitored need to give permission for the technician to monitor quarterly by signing a cooperative agreement with the Council, recognizing that funding for this project comes from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board. Angie will have cooperative agreements with her when she comes to measure. Data from this project will be shared with the Oregon Water Resources Department and the Groundwater Study Advisory Committee for inclusion in the current Groundwater Study going on in the basin. Next scheduled monitoring will be January 2018.|
