Join us on December 11, 2019 at 6:30 PM for a presentation by geologist Jon Kim on Vermont Aquifers and Woodbury Ground Water. Many people think that aquifers are continuous underground bodies of groundwater that are easy to find and delineate. However, a great deal of effort must go into characterizing or “mapping” aquifers to understand groundwater quantity or quality issues, which can occur in unconsolidated surficial material and/or bedrock aquifers. The purpose of this talk is to describe some of the aquifer characterization projects that the Vermont Geological Survey and partners have worked on statewide and in the general Woodbury area to understand groundwater quantity and quality issues.
Come join us at the Woodbury Community Library Open House on December 11th from 5:30-6:30 PM. Have some chili and chat with folks in the community, browse our books, hear what we have done this year and let us know what you would like to see at the library in the coming year. We hope to see you!
