Large Precipitation Events are Critical in Replenishing Groundwater Resources
Large precipitation events that occur about every 10 years are a critical source of recharge for replenishing groundwater resources, according to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of Reclamation. Groundwater is a vital source of water in the western United States, and will be increasingly important with continued population growth and climate variability. Understanding the role of these large recharge events in replenishing aquifers and sustaining water supplies is crucial for long-term...
Future hydrogeologist wants to mitigate groundwater contamination
NGWA continues its monthly spotlight look at the 2016 Len Assante Scholarship winners from the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation. This month we get to know winner Jay Kim. Kim, of Kalamazoo, Michigan, received the first Richard Haderer Award of $3,000. Kim is working on his master’s degree in glacial geology and hydrogeology at Western Michigan University. The Haderer Scholarship was established in 2016 by Paul Haderer in honor of his late brother, Richard. Working as a hydrogeologist...
Groundwater Monitoring Case Study
Global has been contracted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Remediation and Redevelopment Division (MDEQ RRD) to conduct quarterly sampling at a former gas station and adjacent property located near a State of Michigan owned public assess site to Torch Lake. The purpose of the sampling is to assure that there are no impacts to the surface water located downgradient of theformer underground storage tanks or to the drinking water. Additionally, Global will determine if the contaminant plume is...
How Reliable Are Your Groundwater Level Measurements
Over the past few years, Eijkelkamp Soil & Water has gained extensive experience in the management of groundwater level measurement networks. This experience also serves as a foundation for our ongoing efforts to develop and enhance the collected data. For example, in the course of our activities, we have observed a growing discrepancy between manually-collected measurement data and measurements collected with the aid of a pressure sensor. This led us to set up a research programme aimed at improving the...
Study offers first-ever map showing groundwater pollution of coastal areas of United States
The study identified 12 percentof the continental U.S. coastline — including the northern Gulf Coast from Mississippi to the Florida Panhandle, northern Atlantic Coast, and Pacific Northwest—where the once-hidden drainage systems make the ocean most susceptible to freshwater contamination from septic tanks and fertilizer runoff. In contrast, another 9 percentof coastline— including confirmed locations such as southeastern Florida, southern California, and Long Island—are especially...
