Dec. 2: UD Night at Winterthur

University of Delaware students, faculty and staff are invited to join in the winter festivities at UD Night at Yuletide at Winterthur from 4:30-8:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 2.

“Groundwater is the sole source of drinking water south of the C&D Canal, and coastal residents have expressed concern about groundwater overuse and threats to groundwater quality from land use, saltwater intrusion and sea-level rise,” said Joe Farrell, DESG resource management specialist and one of the seminar’s coordinators. “In response to these concerns, we are convening a distinguished group of scientists who can address these issues.”

Coastal scientists from UD and federal and state agencies will provide a primer on groundwater, a coastal groundwater resource inventory, and information about current use, potential impacts from land use, saltwater intrusion and sea-level rise.

The intent of the Focus on the Delaware Coast seminar series is to provide relevant science-based information to support and inform local decision-makers and concerned citizens.

The seminar is free, but seating is limited. Advance registration is required by March 30. For more information and a preliminary program, visit the seminar website.
