Comments

  • It would be very helpful if the well drillers would give more complete information as to the well location such as the lot # and subdivision name. In populated areas it is often difficult to determine the well location, because the name on the well log is a contractor/builder or the original owner.
  • Please always inlcude the well elevation in the basic search and Excel-formatted out put whenever do mutiple-section or multiple well searches. Going back to the individual well summary or reports is very-very time consuming.
  • would like to get the DNRC/water right information/well logs on this site, there may be some data that the MBMG site does not include.
  • I don't know the cost to the taxpayer or economic benefit per login, thus, no comment.
  • Very valuable resource. Please continue to fund.
  • The website saves me both time and money in my work.
  • The more infromation on the web the better for resouce consulting.... keep it up. Not sure how to answer some of the questions however. economic value to me (thid question from the end) is probably in the 10 -$100 range if that is what is being asked. I have not had great luck in finding some of the map work I would like to see ... but I think this is me. thanks!
  • This is an excellent site! I don't know how I would accumulate the data without this site or spending a lot of money and time (which I never have enough of). If the purpose of this survey is to determine whether to continue with the site or not, my vote is an unequivical YES -- KEEP IT!
  • This is one of my most used data resources. Having this data on line is critical to me and saves me hours driving to retrieve it in conventional (paper) form. My vote to keep GWIC ON LINE!!!!
