DEC FY2018 Performance Report with maps summarizing a) essential geoscience  for Vermont communities and b) areas of hazard mapping.

Mapping Projects, 2019-2020:

Surficial geology and groundwater resources of the Stowe quadrangle

Surficial geology and groundwater resources of the Groton quadrangle

Compilation of surficial geology on the Montpelier One-degree sheet


Groundwater chemistry and nitrates, VT (Sutton, Irasburg, Hardwick)


Improving the Mapping of Vermont's Water-Use. Read about it in a Blog Post on the Vermont Center for Geographic Information's blog.

Compilation and upgrade of statewide water use data, including the water well locations in 7 counties.

Hydrogeology and geochemistry of a fractured bedrock aquifer in Bennington and North Bennington, Vermont to address a PFOA contamination issue. 

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.
