Penn State: 2014 Groundwater Symposium Presentations Posted

Groundwater professionals from across Pennsylvania gathered on May 7 at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in State College for the 2014 Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium.
The symposium was again held during National Drinking Water Week in recognition of the importance of groundwater to both public and private drinking water supplies across Pennsylvania.
The Symposium theme: Building Groundwater Knowledge Through Monitoring provided a forum for 210 researchers, students, professionals and educators working in the groundwater field to exchange information and promote protection of groundwater resources throughout the state.
Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Chis Abruzzo provided opening remarks for the symposium followed by keynote speakers who addressed important groundwater issues such as groundwater monitoring, policy, and drought. Dozens of concurrent and poster presentations were also provided on a variety of groundwater topics.  
The Groundwater Symposium was sponsored by Penn State Extension, the Master Well Owner Network, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Water Resources Research Center and the Pennsylvania Ground Water Association.  
More details on this year’s symposium including PDF copies of many of the presentations are available online.
Plans are already underway for the 2015 Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium to be held on May 6, 2015 in State College.
