Groundwater Week - Deadline for Submissions

Groundwater Week 2019 is designed to provide both educational and networking experiences for all who work in the groundwater industry. Every opportunity to maximize the foundations of groundwater science with water supply, resource protection, and remediation will be applied to this premier groundwater event. We learn best from each other and thus we invite you to share your research, technology transfer, unique applications, and experience in one of a variety of options in Las Vegas, Nevada, December 3-5.

The content is being designed to address both the most prevalent and niche groundwater topics. Given the location of the event, application to arid lands is especially encouraged.

All submissions are captured electronically and the content management system turns off at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 21, 2019.

All accepted presenters are subject to the Groundwater Week registration fee and must be registered 45 days prior to the event or their presentation will be withdrawn.

National Groundwater Awareness Week
Mar
10
to Mar 16

National Groundwater Awareness Week

  • National Groundwater Association (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The following is information from NGWA https://www.ngwa.org

Theme

This year’s theme, Think, was designed to urge each of us to consider various ways we can protect our most valuable natural resource. So Think about not running the water while you brush your teeth. Or Think about getting that leaking faucet fixed. Think about the farmers that rely on groundwater to grow the food we eat. And Think about having your well inspected to protect your drinking water system. In short, during #GWAW, Think about our future.  

 Get Involved

In the weeks leading up to #GWAW, NGWA encourages everyone to become official “groundwater protectors” by taking steps to conserve and protect the resource. Businesses, individuals, educators, students, federal agencies, cities, associations, and everyone in between can ask to be added to NGWA’s groundwater protector list through its website or on social media. Have an awesome story to tell? Great! Send it to NGWA and they might highlight your efforts.

Facts

Approximately 132 million Americans rely on groundwater for drinking water. It is used for irrigation, livestock, manufacturing, mining, thermoelectric power, and several additional purposes, making it one of the most widely used and valuable natural resources we have. Consider the following facts:

· Americans use 79.6 billion gallons of groundwater each day.

· Groundwater is 20 to 30 times larger than all U.S. lakes, streams, and rivers combined.

·   44 percent of the U.S. population depends on groundwater for its drinking water supply.

·   More than 13.2 million households have their own well, representing 34 million people.

Protect Your Groundwater Day 2018 - NGWA

The following is information from NGWA https://www.ngwa.org

As August — which is National Water Quality Month — gets underway, NGWA wants to remind you of an upcoming important September “water” date as well. Protect Your Groundwater Day 2018(#PYGWD), taking place September 4, provides an opportunity for people to learn about the importance of groundwater and how the resource impacts lives.

Throughout August we’ll be sharing downloadable/shareable resources and information on #PYGWD.

NGWA recommends that water well owners have their wells checked and tested by a certified and/or licensed contractor every year to ensure water safety. Learn more at WellOwner.org.

Thanks for helping us spread the word about the important role groundwater plays in all of our lives!

NGWA DARCY LECTURE

NGWA DARCY LECTURE

Many of us have been awed by the stunningly beautiful view of alpine lakes and streams – and they are not just beautiful. Nearly half of the world population relies on rivers originating in high mountains for water supply. Source areas of mountain streams have rugged topography with sparse soil and vegetation covers, and were once considered “Teflon basins” that have minimum capacity to store groundwater. Over the past decade or so, a new understanding of alpine hydrogeology has been emerging based on detailed field observations around the world. Alpine basins actually have important aquifer units that provide temporary storage of rain and melt waters from snowpack and glaciers. Gradual release of water from these aquifers sustains stream flow during dry or cold periods, and is critically important for water supply and aquatic habitats in downstream regions. Due to rugged terrain and severely limited vehicle access, alpine hydrogeologists need to rely on creative methods to investigate groundwater, such as geophysical imaging techniques or observation of surface-groundwater interaction. This lecture will demonstrate how we can gain valuable insights into groundwater in challenging environments and develop conceptual understanding of hydrological systems. These ideas and approaches will have broad applicability in a variety of environments, where hydrogeologists are faced with challenging conditions.
