The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) will co-host a workshop on ground water in the Española basin in Santa Fe, N.M. on March 6-7, 2007. The workshop includes a day of talks and posters and a full-day field trip highlighting fault zones and the Cerros del Rio Volcanic Field.

Ground water in the Española basin is the primary source of drinking water for Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and a number of Indian Pueblo nations. Improving the understanding of the three-dimensional hydrogeologic framework of the basin is necessary for better management of its ground water.

This 6th annual workshop provides a forum for scientists from Federal, State and local government agencies and academia to exchange information, develop goals, report progress to technical communities, and establish a working relationship with decision-makers.

When: March 6 & 7

Where: Santa Fe Community College, Main Building, Jemez Rooms 1, 2, and 3 (first day)

The second-day field trip is currently full, but some seats may open at the last minute. For information, please contact Jonathan Caine at 303-236-1822 or jscaine@usgs.gov, or inquire on site during the first day of the workshop.
