We have been collaborating with the USGS since 1995 analyzing several hundred groundwater samples per year. The project focuses on the application of environmental tracers in order to better understand the hydrological settings of the sampled groundwater bodies. Many questions arrise from issues of shallow groundwater contamination from agricultural chemicals (nitrate, pesticides, etc.). The period of the current contract is 2011 to 2016.
