Hydrologic data for two small adjacent wetlands at Spring City, Tennessee, were collected from December 1991 through November 1992. One of the wetlands was natural and the other was constructed to replace a wetland disturbed by the construction of a road embankment.

Water levels were monitored in five 6-inch-diameter wells, approximately 5 feet deep. The casing in each well was slotted-and screened from above land surface to a depth of about 4 feet. Water-level recorders provided continuous records of stage during periods of wetlands inundation, and of water-table depth during periods when the wetlands were not inundated. Water levels also were measured periodically in 20 smaller diameter, shallow wells installed in the wetlands. A recording rain gage was installed at the constructed wetland, and a continuous stage recorder was installed at Town Creek. Land surface at the wells was inundated from 0 to 75 percent of the study period. Additionally, water levels were not more than 1.5 feet below land surface for 57 to 85 percent of the study period.
