USGS Water-Quality Data for the Nation web page walk-through:
Assignment: Locate three agriculture and three oil wells in either site A or site B. In site A, choose wells that have a count of greater than five (the more the better!) and in site B, try to find wells that have a count greater than two. (Some have counts greater than 10; can you find them?)
Using the data you have collected and the website, answer the following questions:
Were there any overall trends in groundwater levels over time? If so, why?
Were there differences in groundwater levels over time in one area versus another?
Give a prediction on the future availability of groundwater resources using this data.
Locate a well in your area and report interesting information you find about the groundwater there.
