National Ground-Water Monitoring Network
Cooperative Agreements

The NGWMN is designed as a cooperative groundwater data collection, management, and reporting system that aggregates data from selected wells and springs 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 USGS National Ground-Water Monitoring Network (NGWMN) has been offering funding to agencies to participate in the NGWMN since Federal Fiscal Year 2015. Documents describing the projects funded through the NGWMN Cooperative Agreements for each year are listed below:
