On September 22, 2005, Dr. Dave Hargis presented a paper titled, 'Groundwater Degradation from Agricultural Pesticides in Volcanic Terrains – A Case History: Oahu, Hawaii.' The conference was the 2nd International Workshop on Aquifer Risk & Vulnerability held in Reggia di Colorno. The venue was 12 km outside of Parma, Italy, in the Palazzo dei Duchi, a historical fortress that served as the residence of Archduchess Maria Luigia in the early 19th C. Maria Luigia was Archduchess of Austria and the 2nd wife of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. The 3-day conference was co-sponsored by the International Association of Hydrogeologists and comprised some 50 international presentations.
