The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has measured the elevation of Great Salt Lake since 1875 and conducted many studies on the hydrology, salinity, water quality, and ecology of the lake. Currently, the USGS operates lake elevation gages at Saltair Marina, Saline (north arm), and on the railroad causeway near Promontory Point.
Water Level Data
The Las Vegas Valley Groundwater Management Program Hydrologic Telemetry System (HTS) was put in place to help educate well owners about water levels in the valley and allow well owners to see fluctuations in water levels near their wells in "real-time." To view the details of a well, select one from the map.
