Geology and Aquifers - General Geology of the Area
Bring your lunch and learn something new about the general geology of the area. Registration is required for each session.
The local area is noted as being part of one of the fastest growing areas of the US today. One of the major concerns of development is the availability and quality of water. This series of lectures will briefly explain the geology of the area and define area aquifers, discuss how surface water and ground water work together, the formation of aquifers, and will conclude with examining past, present, and future environmental concerns about area aquifers.
