David Wunsch has been named director of science and technology for the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), leaving his position of 10 years as the state geologist of New Hampshire.

“NGWA aspires to be the leading ground water association that advocates the responsible development, management, and use of water,” says NGWA executive director Kevin McCray.  “Dave Wunsch will be an excellent leader and innovator in NGWA’s efforts to accomplish this goal.”

Wunsch’s job responsibilities include:
  • assuring the scientific and technical accuracy of information disseminated by the NGWA;
  • serving as the scientific liaison between NGWA and government agencies, international organizations and related non-governmental organizations; and
  • assisting in the development of conference and other professional development (continuing education).
“Dave ably will assist in expanding NGWA’s role as an international leader in the dissemination of ground water-related scientific and technical information, and in the development of policy to guide wise use and protection of the planet’s ground water resources,” McCray adds.  

“I am excited to become part of the association in a professional capacity,” says Wunsch. “NGWA represents the nexus of professional, educational and scientific programs that promote the wise stewardship of our ground water resources.”
