As an early part of our UN World Water Day celebration, we are very happy to share with you our G³⁶⁰ Institute Newsletter, which highlights our 2020 projects involving both local and international activities focused on groundwater resource protection and remediation. Our multi-disciplinary field-focused efforts in collaboration with site owners, groundwater technology, service companies, and government sponsors truly set us apart. We appreciate everyone’s contributions, from funding to on-the-ground efforts using expert knowledge to collect novel datasets and their interpretations. While COVID-19 and social distancing rules required us to adjust our field activities and to life in a virtual environment, I am happy to report the highest attendance ever in our annual meeting history with over 200 attendees at our June Consortium in 2020!
