The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) are pleased to announce the next Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI) webinar: "Why and How Does a Groundwater Well Decline in Performance and What Causes a Well to Plug." This is your last chance to register!
A groundwater well is a lifeline for many people and communities. It will provide drinking water for decades, if it is properly maintained. Just like your teeth need to be cleaned by the dentist and the oil in your car's engine needs to be changed to maintain a long and healthy life, so does your well. We will explore what causes a well to decline in performance and why.  
This 1 hour 20 minute webinar will take place on September 20th, 2018 at 1:00 PM EDT. Participants will earn 0.13 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through AIPG for attending the event. 
The webinar will feature Raymond Talkington, Ph.D., P.G., C.P.G., Principal Hydrogeologist and President, GEOSPHERE Environmental Management, Inc. and Frank Getchell, P.G., C.P.G., Senior Supervising Hydrogeologist, WSP USA.
