Well & Wellhead Management

Nebraska is blessed with abundant groundwater that is generally of good quality. Groundwater is water that fills the openings or pore spaces in sand, gravel, and rock formations.  An aquifer is a formation containing a usable amount of water.  Groundwater from aquifers is a major source of water in Nebraska, and wells are used to access groundwater.

Groundwater is a vital source for agricultural irrigation and for drinking water.
