Overview:

As hydrogeology varies widely across the United States — and as primary jurisdiction over groundwater development rests with the states — each is unique. This webinar series explores the issues encountered in each of the 50 states — one at a time.

David R. Wunsch, Ph.D., PG, will discuss some unique issues related to Delaware’s hydrogeology, including:

  • Delaware having the lowest mean elevation above sea level of any U.S. state, making saltwater intrusion a current threat
  • That in tiny Delaware, agriculture is one of the most important industries and is highly reliant on groundwater for irrigation
  • Delaware having one of the most comprehensive, complimentary groundwater monitoring and weather monitoring networks in the country.

The Delaware hydrogeology webinar focuses on the state’s:

  • Major aquifers
  • Physical and geologic properties
  • Groundwater use and availability
  • Groundwater quality and contamination
  • Surface water/groundwater interactions
  • Groundwater management issues.
