Climate & Hydrology Changes in the Northeast US – David Boutt

In this presentation, Dave analyzes long-term records of groundwater levels in the Northeastern United States, to decipher regional-scale groundwater – surface water interactions. The rich dataset contains a story of large droughts, climate connections, and significant changes in groundwater storage. David is an associate professor of Hydrogeology in the Department of Geosciences at the University […]

Source Zone Remediation – James Barker

Jim discusses remediation technologies that target source zones containing Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs), such as solvents and hydrocarbons. He makes the point that even under highly controlled research conditions, it is unrealistic to expect complete source removal. Jim recently retired as a Professor at the University of Waterloo and remains involved in research and graduate […]

The Southwest Kenya Village Drill

GWI partners with the Rift Valley Resource Centre to implement the Southwest Kenya Village Drill Project in Nandi County, Kenya. The need for water in Nandi County is dire: government stats indicated that less than 30% of the population has ready access to clean water.

 In looking at options for contributing in Kenya, our Team […]

Conceptual Model for the Charleston Joint Weapons Base – Tom Champion

In this classical description of a hydrogeological Conceptual Model, Tom makes use of litho-facies correlation to understand a complex setting. The site is a US Air Force base in Charleston, South Carolina, with a long history of military development and use. It is characterized by the transgressive evolution of a Barrier Island System, crossed by […]

Groundwater Protection in DENMARK – Flemming Fogh Pedersen

Flemming provides an excellent overview of the national groundwater protection program in Denmark, where almost 100% of the drinking water supply is sourced from groundwater. This impressive mapping and modelling effort has been in progress for the past 15 years. To date, two billion Danish kroner has been spent, and groundwater resources have been mapped […]
