Groundwater in Grand Island isn’t a new thing. The city was established in the Platte River Valley in the 1860’s; early pioneers noted how high the groundwater was then.
Are you curious about groundwater levels near your property? Head to the Grand Island City Website- https://gis.grand-island.com/maps/parcel/ -our GIS Data & Mapping Viewer has all of our groundwater monitoring wells available at the click of a box. Turn on the Groundwater Layer by selecting the Infrastructure half-full pipe icon in the top right corner. The blue circles indicate monitoring wells; clicking on one will allow you to access the Groundwater Report for that well in the right-hand menu.
Groundwater Reports have statistics for the life of the monitoring well. You can see the record low groundwater level, record high groundwater level, current levels, and the ground elevation for comparison.
