The Groundwater Information Center (GWIC) is the central repository for information on groundwater resources in Montana. Through the GWIC website, private well owners can access well-completion reports from drillers, measurements of well performance, water-level measurements at various wells, and water-quality reports for thousands of samples. The database at GWIC are continually updated with new data from driller's logs and research projects from various agencies across the state.
