Recent spring flow monitoring was initiated at the Arboretum Big Spring by student Nick Ballering under the guidance of professor of hydro-geology, Jean Bahr.  Steve Glass continued the monitoring and added White Clay Spring, Council Spring, and Dancing Sands springs to the monitoring program.  The most recent data (from October, 2004 to April, 2011) that has been compiled  is presented below.
