Wallace, who is AIPG president, asked if the Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental and Spatial Analysis wanted a groundwater well on campus. The answer was an enthusiastic “yes.”
UNG students enrolled in geological classes, specifically hydrogeology, will benefit from the new groundwater well. Dr. Christopher Seminack explained students will learn firsthand how to record depth of groundwater and monitor the water table as it fluctuates during the seasons. They also will learn to collect groundwater samples from the well.
“Our students will stand out since they will have the experience of monitoring a groundwater well,” he said. “These are lessons they usually would not learn until they get into the industry.”
