Between March 2002 and May 2011 periodic water level measurements were made in the well on the summit of KÄ«lauea Volcano using a 2,000-foot calibrated electric tape (Waterline Envirotech Ltd.) with graduations of 0.01 foot. Water level measurements resumed in March 2018. Calibration of the electric tape at the USGS Hydrologic Instrumentation Facility (HIF) in November 2018 revealed a displacement of 0.29 feet over 1,980 feet of the electric tape. We therefore estimate that the accuracy of the water level measurements is 0.3 foot (±9 cm). Water level measurements were referenced to the top of the wellhead, located at 1103 meters above sea level at the time of drilling in 1973.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 1959 eruption of Kilauea Volcano, first phase of activity in Kilauea Iki Crater. Braided lava cascades down the crater wall to the lava river, the main cascade, and the lava lake, viewed from Byron Ledge overlook. Fume rises from the fountain and from the dead vents. On the north wall of the crater, a number of forest fires sweep up the slope. Photo by U.S. National Park Service, November 15, 1959.
