Groundwater Monitoring and Modeling

Groundwater monitoring and modeling at UMore Park have contributed to baseline data on groundwater conditions prior to development. Graduate students in the Department of Geology and Geophysics in the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering collected groundwater data, including temperature, elevation, flow and recharge, against which future potential changes can be evaluated. This information supports the development a groundwater management plan that can evolve to meet the changing needs and uses of the property. Continued monitoring over the long term can generate important scientific data and also provide valuable information for the region. Both groundwater monitoring reports can be found on the Student Project page.
