Two Groundwater Studies Funded

A proposal titled "Identification of Fecal Pollution of Karst Waters" by W.R. Kelly (Illinois State Water Survey), W.-T. Liu (University of Illinois), and S.V. Panno (Illinois State Geological Survey) was funded by the Midwest Technology Assistance Center for $83,138.

William Roy is principal investigator and Sam Panno is co-investigator on an Illinois State Geological Survey proposal that was funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The proposal is titled "Protecting Drinking Water by Reducing Uncertainties Associated with Geologic Carbon Sequestration in Deep Saline Aquifers." Panno is the technical lead on Task 5, "Structural Controls on Saline Groundwater Discharge from the Illinois Basin: Long-term Monitoring of Nearby Seeps and Implications for CO2 Sequestration Locations."
