Annual Well Water Level Measurements

BACOG continues its efforts to monitor the water levels in our area’s shallow aquifer system and completed this year’s annual measurements on July 20th.  Many thanks to the teams at the U.S. Geological Survey and Illinois State Water Survey who provided invaluable technical assistance to take measurements in the area’s 14 dedicated monitoring wells.  We also appreciate the continued participation of water operators in the BACOG area and beyond who collect groundwater level readings in over 60 municipal wells in Algonquin, Barrington, Carpentersville, Cary, Crystal Lake, East Dundee, Fox River Grove, Lake Barrington, Hoffman Estates, Island Lake, Lake in the Hills, McHenry, South Elgin, Tower Lakes, and Wauconda.  Be on the lookout for updates on the information gathered from these measurements soon.
