Monkton Well Data Needed

Please help Monkton Assure Clean Water!

We have had very low participation in helping us with our request for water well information.

If we can gather enough data we can use it to avoid potential damage to our wells in the event of future nearby utility work or construction.

For those of you who have already sent in your well data – thank you! – and let us know if you would like to have a free water analysis done from your well (valued at close to $200).

Instructions on how to get this information are below….OR if you want someone to locate your well for you, email jfrater@monktonvt.com or call 989-9078.

Each well with data submitted will be entered in a drawing to winning a $25.00 gift certificate at the Monkton General Store.

Thanks!….Monkton Planning Commission.

Funded through a grant, this study will use water well data to help map the geologic materials and layers across our town. We want to know what and where the geologic materials are so we can better understand how groundwater recharges our wells in Monkton. We all get our drinking water from wells so knowing about how our water gets replenished is very important toward keeping our water safe and clean.

For every well we would like to know the following information:

The Town of Monkton needs your help!

For those of you who have already located your water wells and filled out
the survey…thank you!

For those who have not yet completed this there is a very simple way to get
the GPS coordinates of your wells without even going outside!

On your computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone or other smart phone, go to
latlong.net. Type in place name (address) – Google earth map appears with
an arrow pointing at your house and the coordinates show above the cursor.
To move the arrow to your well location touch the screen where your well is
and the coordinates appear. Takes about 30 seconds sitting at the kitchen
table!

Once you are ready to submit your data, please click on the Survey Monkey
link on the Monkton Planning Commission front page titled: Link to Input
Your Well Data in Survey Monkey <https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8L3BK8C>,
which will take you to our Survey Monkey well data input sheet. Please
submit your well information, even if only some of the data is available.

Again, through a grant with the State of Vermont and US Geological Survey,
the Town of Monkton is part of a surficial geological re-mapping study. The
end result of this study will be a map of geological resources, including
groundwater recharge areas.

This study will use water well data to help map the geologic materials and
layers across our town. We want to know what and where the geologic
materials are so we can better understand how groundwater recharges our
wells in Monkton. We all get our drinking water from wells so knowing about
how our water gets replenished is very important toward keeping our water
safe and clean.

Thanks in advance!
