The mission of the Water Discipline, which supports the overall mission of the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Geological Survey, is to provide the hydrologic information and understanding needed for the best use and management of the Nation's water resources for the benefit of the people of the United States.
This website was originally designed as a part of a groundwater network analysis project to select the most-representative wells in the South Florida area. Such wells were considered to be among the most efficient sites to instrument with telemetry. With this website, the goal is to provide water managers with daily updates on groundwater conditions in southern Florida. Many of the analytical tools used to select the representative monitoring wells are also employed to analyze data for this website. The site incorporates image maps showing current conditions for stations in selected geographical areas and aquifers, and statistical comparison plots for each station. The maps can also be used to navigate the site to the pages specific to the stations displayed.
