Creating a better way to track groundwater contamination

Read the full story from the University of Vermont.

Keith Klepeis, Ph.D., professor of geology in the University of Vermont’s Department of Geography and Geosciences, recently partnered with colleagues from the Vermont Geological Survey (part of the Department of Conservation), the State University of New York (SUNY) Plattsburgh, and Middlebury College to lead 30 hydrogeologists to see a PFAS groundwater-contamination site beneath Rutland Airport. The trip was part of the National Groundwater Association Conference hosted in Burlington in September.

“Vermont, like all states, is facing a major PFAS groundwater-contamination crisis,” Klepeis says, “and we got the chance to highlight what we are doing about it.”
