The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is collecting data and developing a groundwater flow model to evaluate the impacts of pumping on Cold Spring Creek. A groundwater flow model simulates existing groundwater conditions and can be used as a predictive tool to guide future groundwater use.
The DNR will monitor and collect data through 2020. An interim groundwater flow model will be developed in 2018. A final model will be completed in 2021.
