Our Groundwater Resources – Current and Future Status

“Our Groundwater Resources – Current and Future Status” will be the second in a series of seminars that focuses on coastal resource issues in Delaware.

The seminar will take place Wednesday, April 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Virden Center at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. The event is hosted by the Delaware Sea Grant College Program and Delaware Geological Survey.

Coastal scientists from UD, federal and state agencies will provide a primer on groundwater, a coastal groundwater resource inventory, current use and potential impacts from land use, saltwater intrusion, weather and climate change.

The intent of the Focus on the Coast seminar series is to provide relevant science-based information to support and inform local decision-makers and concerned citizens.

The seminar is free but seating is limited. Advance registration is required by March 30.
