AbstractFreshwater resources are becoming increasingly strained throughout the world. This is due to a number of causes including larger populations; increasing agricultural irrigation that often results in overuse or salinization; populations increasing in sunny dry climates that have limited water to begin with; more pollution from cities, agriculture, and industry; increased human and industrial consumption; and climate change. Knowing the condition and quantity of water supplies is absolutely critical for planning future growth. Monitoring surface water and water level changes throughout a watershed could improve hydrological models and the information available for environmental management and social planning.
