Summary

A dataset of well information and geospatial data was developed for 426 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) observation wells in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. An extensive list of attributes is included about each well, its location, and water-level history to provide the public and water-resources community with comprehensive information on the USGS well network in New England and data available from these sites. These data may be useful for evaluating groundwater conditions and variability across the region. The well list and site attributes, which were extracted from USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), represent all of the active wells in the New England network up to the end [...]

Purpose

The dataset provides the information needed to evaluate redundancies or gaps in the well network, and conduct other regional hydrologic studies, such as drought forecasting and management and potential responses of groundwater flow systems to land-use and climate change.
