Annual Forum Presentations Now Online

The 2021 GWPC Annual Forum wrapped up last week. 

You can now view PowerPoint presentations from the conference from presenters who have given their permission. Those who registered for the Forum can access recordings of the conference for 6 months via their log in within the Whova web or mobile app.

New Mexico Releases WaterSTAR Produced Water Data Portal

The New Mexico Produced Water Reuse data portal was developed through an agreement between the New Mexico Produced Water Research Consortium and the Ground Water Protection Council (GWPC) in support of the New Mexico Water Data Initiative. The WaterSTAR product of the GWPC was used as the basis of the data portal. The data sources used in the development of the data portal are provided by the New Mexico Oil Conservation Division (OCD) and the Petroleum Recovery Research Center: A Division of New Mexico Tech.

In the portal, water quantity data is grouped monthly by ¼ Township and only produced water identified as being disposed through Saltwater Disposal Wells (SWD) are being displayed in the interface. Produced water quality data is also grouped and anonymized by the same ¼ Townships. This is designed to allow for the future addition of confidentially supplied produced water quality data.

USGS National Ground-Water Monitoring Network Accepting 2022 Proposals

The Cooperative Funding Opportunity for the USGS National Ground-Water Monitoring Network Proposals for 2022 is now open.

The NGWMN is designed as a cooperative groundwater data collection, management, and reporting system that will include data from selected wells in existing federal, state, tribal, and local groundwater monitoring networks. The network is envisioned as a long-term collaborative partnership among federal and non-federal data providers that will help address present and future groundwater management questions facing the nation. The NGWMN will provide the data needed to determine regional and national trends in groundwater levels and groundwater quality and facilitate the evaluation of transboundary groundwater resources.

Water Research Foundation Offers Free Webcast:

Geochemical Considerations for Managed Aquifer Recharge Implementation in Potable Reuse

Tuesday, October 19 | 1pm - 2pm ET

(12pm CT, 11am MT, 10am PT)

Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) is the intentional recharge of water into a subsurface aquifer through a specially designed well or basin for future recovery or other environmental benefit. Potable reuse MAR involves treating wastewater effluent to national and state water quality standards using advanced water treatment (AWT) techniques as a source of recharge water. MAR can assist utilities with long-term water supply planning and will play an important role in future water reuse goals for water utilities worldwide.

This webcast will summarize the results of Geochemical Considerations for Managed Aquifer Recharge Implementation in Potable Reuse (project 5051). Presenters will describe a decision framework to evaluate potential physical and geochemical issues anticipated when applying potable reuse for MAR to basins or wells. Utility case studies will also demonstrate the supporting decision framework tool, which can help solve common geochemical and physical problems encountered during MAR implementation (e.g., mobilization of metals, clogging, clay conditioning).
