USGS Receives Funds for Monitoring Network

As part of the FY 15 CROmnibus funding package, ASDWA has learned that funding has also been made available for a US Geological Survey initiative to sustain data collection efforts.  The National Groundwater Monitoring Network (NGWMN) is funded at $2,600,000.  Appropriations language calls on the Survey to provide cost-share grants to states in the form of cooperative agreements to upgrade monitoring networks to national standards and to incorporate wells into the network.  To learn more about the NGWMN, please visit
