Choose the appropriate link to view the sites for a Water Management Area.

Google Maps links work on most newer browsers. (Google Maps links are temperamental: please report any problems).

Google Earth links require that Google Earth be installed on your computer. If necessary, download and install the free Google Earth application.

Depending on the configuration of Google Earth on your computer, you may need to save the KMZ files at the links below on your computer before opening them. You may need to adjust the pointers on the Google Earth time slider in order to see all sites.

Plain tables work on just about anything.

The data choices are:

Icon markers: Marks sites according to type (Google Earth opens with all sites selected ■).
Maucha markers: Places Maucha ionic marker symbols at each site (Google Earth opens with no sites selected □).
Boreholes: Thousands of borehole sites (Google Earth opens with no sites selected □).
(The Maucha and borehole selections are memory-intensive, which is why they give users the option to select the sites or areas of interest. Spring and eye sites are in the surface water lists.)

The most common problem is the time slider spanning the wrong dates.
