Current Status Explanation
Above Median - Depth to water level < 50th percentile
Below Median - Depth to water level > 50th and < 75th percentile
Drought Watch - Depth to water level > 75th and < 90th percentile
Drought Warning - Depth to water level > 90th and < 95th percentile
Drought Emergency - Depth to water level > 95th percentile
No Statistics - Statistics not available for this well

Median shows the middle of the distribution and is less sensitive to extreme water levels, so it is more typical than the mean.

XXX = statistic not available for this well

*wells monitored for the Christina Basin Drought Management Plan

^Recent activity at the well site may have altered the hydrologic conditions as they apply to the drought triggers.

Wells CH 2273, CH 2328 and CH 6516 can have ground water levels above the land surface (known as an artesian well); a (-) sign indicates a water level above the land surface.

Percentiles shown were revised as of May 31, 2006 to reflect updated statistical analysis reported in the  U.S. Geological Survey report DS-292.
