The boom in unconventional oil and gas development presents many challenges to groundwater resources, including water availability and groundwater quality. To provide forums to address these issues, the National Ground Water Association sponsored workshops in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 2014 and in Columbus, Ohio, in 2017 to bring together scientists and practitioners from the groundwater and oil & gas industries, government, and universities. The goal of these workshops is to identify data gaps and science needs, and to provide recommendations for reducing uncertainties related to groundwater risk. This third workshop focuses on water availability and improved water management practices for groundwater protection.
Abstracts from both groundwater and upstream oil & gas industry professionals are solicited on these general topics with an emphasis on those addressing:
Abstracts must be submitted in sentence form and without bullet points by Friday, January 4, 2019.
