David S. Snipes/Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium


The 2017 event will take place on April 6 with field trips on April 5 and 7.

Early Registration starts on Dec 1.

Oral and poster presentations will take place at the Madren Center located on the Clemson University campus. The presentations will cover a diverse assortment of topics including characterization, monitoring, remediation and many others at various scales (lab to watershed). You can directly influence the content and tone of this event by submitting an abstract and giving a presentation of your work.

Abstracts are due February 17, 2017.

We actively encourage participants to propose theme sessions, solicit abstracts and moderate a session. Click here for more info.

The keynote speaker for 2016 was the NGWA Darcy Lecturer: Ty Ferre from the University of Arizona.  His lecture explored how the practice of hydrology depends on computer models while at the same time new methods have been adapted or developed for characterizing and monitoring the subsurface.  Click here for more detail.

The 2016 field trip examined the geology of the Jocassee Watershed and included an underground visit to the Bad Creek Pumped Storage facility with Malcolm Schaeffer. Sign up early as trip sizes are limited.

Several regulatory bodies or organizations currently accept this event and field trips for continuing education credits (CECs) or professional development hours (PDHs). If you attend both the day of presentations and a field trip you could earn up to 16 CECs or PDHs. Click for a list.

The registration cost for the event includes refreshments and lunch. Pre-registration for the 2017 event ends on March 1. You can register online after that date up till March 24 or at the event (register at door: $200).

The post-Symposium mixer at the Geology Museum is made possible by the generosity of alumni and other sponsors.

Mission Statement
The Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium is an on-going effort to engage and educate the hydrogeological community at large whether from industry or academia. Our primary focus is on geologic and hydrologic issues in the southeast US but it is not restricted to any geographic extent. Our long term goal has been to offer an opportunity for industry related projects to intermingle with academic research and bridge the gap that has traditionally separated these two endeavors.
