This event has been cancelled. If you have any questions, please contact the event planner directly.

Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and the unprecedented challenges it poses to communities across Pennsylvania and around the world, Penn State has decided to cancel all public events and programs through at least April 6, 2020. This decision, though difficult, was made in the best interests of the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and the local communities, organizations and citizens we serve. In an abundance of caution and with the safety of our attendees in mind, we have decided to cancel this event. 
Although Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium has been cancelled, there is a possibility that it will be rescheduled in the future. If it is, you will receive an invitation to the rescheduled event. In the meantime, if your event required a registration fee, you will be issued a refund for the cancelled event. 
As of now, programs and events scheduled for after April 6 will be held as planned, pending further developments. If you are registered for or interested in events after that date, watch for further information in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, you can follow updates on the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation from Penn State, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation. If you have questions or need more information, please call 814-865-8301 or email

Penn State Extension and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection along with numerous other sponsors invite you to attend the 2020 Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium on Monday, May 11, at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center in State College, PA.

The Symposium will provide a forum for researchers, students, professionals and educators working in the groundwater field to exchange information and promote protection of groundwater resources throughout the state.

The day-long symposium will begin at 8:30 AM on Monday, May 11, 2020 with opening remarks and a morning plenary session with several keynote presentations.  Additional morning and afternoon plenary and concurrent session speakers will address numerous important groundwater issues in Pennsylvania. Registrants can also receive continuing education credits for attending all sessions.

Registration will open in February.  A reduced registration fee will be made possible thanks to generous funding support from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Ground Water Association and the Pennsylvania Water Resources Research Center.  The symposium is seeking additional sponsorships to continue to support the program.  Please see the sponsorship page for details.  Discounted registration is also available for certified Penn State Master Well Owner volunteers. Your registration fee will include morning and afternoon break food and a buffet lunch.

An optional field trip will be offered on Tuesday, May 12 for an additional fee.  This field trip will take participants to Cammal, PA to provide an in-depth tour of a Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling site. See the "Optional Field Trip" tab for more information about the tour.

We hope you can join us for this event showcasing Pennsylvania's valuable groundwater resources!
