The current groundwater monitoring network has many problems caused by the history and poor techniques, which has provided incomplete groundwater information and it is adverse to the management of groundwater resources. So it is necessary to optimize it. The writer takes the deep pore confined water monitoring network in Ningbo Plain as an example ,using the main two parts of geo-statistics—variogram and Kriging interpolation to adjust the number and position of the current 29 wells on it, finally getting a new more reasonable monitoring network consists of 19 wells after removing 17 redundant wells and adding 7 new wells.
