|A year-long cooperative study between the BSEACD and Travis County focusing on the hydrogeology of western Travis County. The study aims to increase the understanding of groundwater trends and aquifer dynamics to help inform residents and policy makers.|

Water level tracking is particularly important in Edwards and Trinity wells, because water levels fluctuate substantially during drought and wet periods. When home owners know the depth of their pump, a water level measurement can show how much water is above the level of the pump.
In collaboration with Travis County and to help residents better understand groundwater trends, District staff has scheduled several weeks for neighborhood site visits focused in five different areas throughout southwestern Travis County. Site visits are free of charge. Staff will take a water level measurement (if possible), measure basic water quality, and share these data with well owners. These site visits will aid in better understanding local hydrology and geology.
