Geoscience, in collaboration with Best Best & Krieger and John Robinson Consulting, hosted a “Roadmap to Groundwater Sustainability” Workshop on September 13, 2016 in Ontario, California. The Workshop was created to help California’s counties, cities and water districts navigate through the requirements of the California Department of Water Resources Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA).
Workshop attendees were given an overview of SGMA and guidance through its requirements, including forming a Groundwater Sustainability Agency and developing and implementing a Groundwater Sustainability Plan. The Workshop also included a review of grant programs that are available for implementation assistance.
Additional workshops are planned. For more information, contact Lindsay Swain, PG, CHG, Senior Geohydrologist, [email protected].
Geoscience is pleased to announce the promotion of Christofer Coppinger, PG, CHG and Terry Watkins, PG, CHG to Senior Geohydrologists.
“Both Chris and Terry have been an essential part of the Geoscience team for more than 10 years. Their dedication to our clients and commitment to excellence in our industry has made them both a valuable asset to our clients and to our firm. We are excited to see Chris and Terry taking on their new lead roles,” commented Dr. Dennis Williams, President of Geoscience.
Geoscience is very proud of our own Nathan Reynolds who was presented the Carnegie Medal in Claremont, California on April 22, 2017. He was honored for his heroic actions back in January 2015 in Marina, California where he rescued Olivia Schreiber and her great-granddaughter from a sinking car. Nathan was driving nearby and witnessed a car crashing into a pond. He sprang into action and jumped into the water pulling the little girl through the car window and swam her to safety. Nathan returned back to the pond rescuing the great-grandmother from the submerging car when police arrived and helped him in bringing the woman to safety. Both the woman and little girl made a full recovery due to Nathan’s bravery and quick actions on that day.
