Water Level Monitoring Grants

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission is offering a new grant program to project sponsors specifically targeted to support the collection and reporting of water level data in groundwater production wells in the basin.

Grant funding is focused on needs such as purchasing, installing, or maintaining water level monitoring equipment, to provide the appropriate data collection methods to meet the Commission’s requirements to monitor and report operational data. Funding should have the potential to positively impact a project sponsor’s ability to report reliable water level data, develop a valuable resource of operational water level data, prepare for the permit renewal process, and allow informed management of a water system.

Grants may be used for projects that are not currently collecting water level data from their well(s) or may be used to upgrade equipment: to address equipment failure; to achieve better accuracy; to improve efficiency; or to automate water level measurement/recording.
