The Groundwater Project, which provides accessible educational materials free-of-charge online to all who want to learn about groundwater, is hosting its first online Groundwater Project event.

The event began on February 3 and runs through February 26. It features a series of meetings and discussions addressing relevant hydrogeology issues.

It is being broadcast on the Groundwater Project YouTube channel and those watching can interact with the speakers through the live chat.

The session takes place from 2:10-3 p.m. ET.

The mission of the Groundwater Project is to provide accessible educational materials free-of-charge online in many languages to all who want to learn about groundwater. The materials cover nearly all aspects of groundwater relating to developed and developing countries.

The first three books debuted last August. Hundreds of groundwater professionals from academia, industry, and government are writing more than 200 books in support of the Groundwater Project’s mission. The goal is to publish 40 by the end of 2021.

The project began in 2017 after the famed textbook, Groundwater, by Allan Freeze, Ph.D., and John Cherry, Ph.D., was made available for download and the goal of updating and expanding it was established.
