The Cooperative Funding Opportunity for the USGS National Ground-Water Monitoring Network Proposals for 2022 is now open.
The NGWMN is designed as a cooperative groundwater data collection, management, and reporting system that will include data from selected wells in existing federal, state, tribal, and local groundwater monitoring networks. The network is envisioned as a long-term collaborative partnership among federal and non-federal data providers that will help address present and future groundwater management questions facing the nation. The NGWMN will provide the data needed to determine regional and national trends in groundwater levels and groundwater quality and facilitate the evaluation of transboundary groundwater resources.
Three informational sessions will be held to answer questions about the program announcement. These are scheduled for October 20 at 2 p.m. EDT, November 10 at 1 p.m. EDT, and December 2 at 12 p.m. EST. The sessions will be held in Teams meetings.
