Year in review, a report submitted to the Association of American State Geologists, 2016
DEC FY2018 Performance Report with maps summarizing a) essential geoscience for Vermont communities and b) areas of hazard mapping.
Mapping Projects, 2017-2018:
Surficial geology and groundwater resources of the Bolton Mountain quadrangle
Surficial geology and groundwater resources of the southern 1/2 of the Proctor quadrangle
Surficial geology of the Barre East quadrangle
Groundwater resources of the Joes Pond quadrangle, Vermont
Geochemistry of till from the Montpelier one-degree sheet to contribute to our understanding groundwater and surface water chemistry.
Groundwater chemistry and nitrates, Sutton, VT
Groundwater in fractured bedrock:
Compilation and upgrade of statewide water use data, including the water well locations in 7 counties.
Continued studies in Hinesburg and the Champlain Valley to understand groundwater flow, bedrock type and thrust faults. Studies provide data for water supply, radionuclide/water quality and other fate and transport of contaminants.
Landslide hazard mapping, Chittenden County.
