In celebration of National Drinking Water Week, Penn State
Extension and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection along
with numerous other sponsors invite you to attend the 2017 Pennsylvania
Groundwater Symposium at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in State College, PA.
The Symposium theme, Groundwater and Drinking Water: Making the
Connection, 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 Wednesday, May 3, 2017 with
opening remarks by Gale Blackmer, State Geologist and Bureau Director of the
Pennsylvania Geological Survey. A
morning plenary session will be highlighted by a keynote presentation from Dr.

session speakers will address numerous important groundwater issues in
Pennsylvania. Registrants can also receive continuing education credits or
professional development hours for attending.
A nominal registration fee of $40 for the symposium is made possible thanks to
generous funding support from Penn State Extension, the Master Well Owner
Network, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the
Pennsylvania Ground Water Association and the Pennsylvania Water Resources
Research Center. Discounted registration is also available for certified
Penn State Master Well Owner volunteers. Registration will be opened at the end of February and will be limited to the
first 260 registrants or May 2, 2017 - whichever comes first. Your
registration fee pays for morning and afternoon break food and a buffet lunch.
