This page features maps that are based on annual water level monitoring programs in the Tucson basin and in Avra Valley. Groundwater levels in all available City of Tucson wells are periodically measured to maintain long-term records to assist in management of local groundwater resources.
For further information, see 2018 Status and Quality of the Aquifer.

18-Year Groundwater Level Change
The result of 18 years of recharge and recovery of renewable water has been the recovery of groundwater levels in central Tucson of almost 63 feet and in southwestern Tucson of more than 88 feet.
These maps were updated and uploaded in September 2019. Recent groundwater levels can be queried directly from the Arizona Department of Water Resources Groundwater Site Inventory .
