Monitor wells show surge in ESPA storage

The combination of aquifer recharge, a big winter snowpack and reductions in groundwater consumption by irrigators has led to at least a 660,000 acre-foot increase in Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer storage, according to a recent analysis.

Irrigators who draw from the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer are well ahead of schedule in their efforts to reverse a longterm trend of declining groundwater levels, an analysis of monitor wells confirms.
