Each year since 2018, the Indiana Water Monitoring Council (InWMC) has published an annual Indiana Water Report to summarize the current water monitoring efforts and research in the State of Indiana.
In the 2021 report, 28 organizations contributed over 60 project summaries covering work in areas such as monitoring of groundwater, ecology, streams and lakes, and water quality. Additionally, this report contains projects related to water resource planning and preparedness.
The Indiana Water Report is intended to help those working to manage water resources in Indiana do so more effectively and with a fuller understanding of how their efforts fit into the larger picture and to support great communication and collaboration wherever possible.
New Groundwater Monitoring Network Inventory
In addition to project summaries, the 2021 report includes a featured article focused on a new list of networks which monitor groundwater quality.
A portion of the networks listed are statewide, incorporating sites in both the unconsolidated and bedrock aquifer systems that supply water to the commercial, agricultural, and public supply systems
throughout the State. Other networks are more local in extent and focus on the conditions of a specific aquifer, or the resources of single or multi-county extent.
The list includes contact information for each of the identified networks that can be used to get more
information on the data availability, use, or to acquire additional information about their networks.
Read the full report to learn about these networks and project throughout the state.
Who is the Indiana Water Monitoring Council?
The Indiana Water Monitoring Council (InWMC) is a non-profit association founded in 2008 as a broad-based, state-wide body committed to enhancing the communication, collaboration and coordination of professionals, organizations, and individuals involved in monitoring Indiana’s water resources, including ground and surface waters, their physical, chemical and biological components, and associated wetland resources.
